      General Notes:
      William V. Adkinson
      Death: BET 1754 AND 1774

      at http://littlecalamity.tripod.com/Genealogy/AdkinsFamily.html
      WILLIAM V. ADKINS (JOHN THOMAS, JOHN THOMAS, THOMAS, HENRY) was born March 28, 1689 in Henrico County, Virginia, and died Abt. 1774 in Richmond, Henrico County, Virginia. He married ELIZABETH PARKER January 17, 1715/16 in St. John's Church, Richmond, Henrico, Virginia, daughter of RICHARD PARKER and MITHA ?. She was born Abt. 1695 in Charles City, Henrico County, Virginia, and died Bef. 1733 in Goochland County, Virginia.
      Notes for WILLIAM V. ADKINS:
      I've seen his father listed as Thomas Adkins, Jr. of Henrico County, VA. Others believe his father is John Adkins of New Kent County. The spelling of the name is often Atkinson [son of Adkins].
