      At the time of his marriage, Henry lived, along with the rest of his fami
      ly, in the Pigg River area of Halifax (Pittsylvania 1767, Henry 1776, an
      d Franklin, as today in 1785) County, Virginia. There are many records o
      f Henry especially in Pittsylvania. These records (mostly land transacti
      ons) of Henry and Rachel clearly prove his relationship to his brother, P
      arker, and to their father, William Sr. Oneof the records that clearly p
      roves his relationship is -- 15 Mar. 1773 Henry sold fifty acres to Samue
      l Calland (Pittsylvania deed book 4 pages 343-344). In this record, it i
      s stated "...it being the land the said Henry now lives on which he bough
      t of his brother, Parker, ... and boundaries will more fully appear by hi
      s deed he had from his father William Adkins, Sr."
      As Rachel and Henry were selling their land in the Pigg River area of Pit
      tsylvaniain 1773 it is believed they were preparing to move to Fincastl
      e (Montgomery1777, Giles 1806) County to join his brothers. It is know
      n that Henry was in Montgomery in 1791 as he and Parker were granted exem
      ptions from county taxes because of "age and infirmities".
