William B. Adkins, Jr. was b.1721 in Henrico Co., Va. and d.3/15/1784 in Pittsylvania Co.,Va. (If you know anything about the local geography, Hwy.29S. runs through Pitt. Co. directly into Caswell Co., NC.) He married Lydia Owens, b. 1724, in about 1745 in Goochland Co., Va. Wm., Jr. is the son of William Adkins, Sr., b. 1690 in Charles City Co., Va, and Elizabeth Parker, b. 1695. Lydia was the d/o William Owens, b. about 1672 in Surry Co., Va., d. 10/23/1752 in Halifax Co., Va. (Pittsylvania Co. was formed out of Halifax Co. in 1767) and Lydia Lunsford, b. 1699 in VA. Somewhere in my research, I have a copy of Wm. Adkins,Sr.'s will which ,as I recall was probated in Halifax Co. I have quite a bit of ancestral information on Lydia's family and some on the Adkins side. Will try to organize it and send you more.
