  • Name Andrew Jackson Atkins  [1, 2
    • • Andrew's draft registration, dated September 12, 1918, shows him with a birth date of August 10, 1883. This document is personally signed by Grampa Andrew, spelling his last name ATKINS. The family Bible of his brother, Oliver Balaam Atkins, gives his birth date as 8 Aug 1883.
      Further notes on spelling the family name:

      • Census records do not agree on his age (which is not unusual for census records).
      • Family recollection of his children, most of whom were asked, agree he was born on August 10, 1884.
      • The family Bible of his brother, Oliver Balaam Atkins, gives his birth date as August 8, 1883.

    Home is still there today, but has been moved nearby to this location to avoid floods. (previous?) Owners of house: Benjamin K. & Anna L. Given. Although her death certificate states she died in Mountain State Hospital, Grama Mary is said to have actually died at home in this house (and apparently was "declared" dead later). (At least one living or private individual is linked to this item - Details withheld.)

      "But I'd say our dad name was - Adkins I say this becase Lonny spelled his name Adkins so Mrs Cummings must have known, as Dad probly told her - so and so."
