    • • Per researcher, Ralph Adkins, Jacob Stover & Mary Adkins were both in Snow Creek District of Lunenberg Co, VA in 1754; which is also the birth year for Mary's oldest child, David Adkins.

      DNA evidence suggests that Jacob Stover, Jr. was the father of Mary's children (him being at least the most likely candidate).

      • It is unclear why Mary's children bore the Adkins name.

    Family 2  Mr. Oxford 
    Married 
    • Regarding suppositions of a common law marriage between Mary Adkins and either Jacob Harley or Jacob Oxford: Common Law Marriage has never been recognized in Virginia or West Virginia. Only in certain documented out of state common law marriages does West Virginia recognize certain rights along with certain previous out of state domicile and other requirements. (per some legal opinions given online)

      DNA results suggest that the father of Mary Adkins' son, Jacob, was an Oxford.

      • It is unclear why Mary's children bore the Adkins name.
