ANDREW ADKINS,b. 8 Feb 1857 died before 1894.(Probably in 1892 and he is probably buried in Cut Cemetery, Helenwood, Scott County, Tennessee). He married ELIZA JANE PARTIN 18 Jan 1879. He was the Sheriff of Helenwood, Scott, Tennessee for a while and was killed in the line of duty while breaking up a drunken group disturbing the peace on a Sunday morning; (This information according to "Dusty Bits of the Forgotton Past" by H. Clay Smith.) He had daughters NETTIE, FLORA and EVA who are listed in the 1880 census and he had a brother named LACY who married EMILY KEETON and a brother named DAVID (or possibly JOHN DAVID). His parents were LEMUEL ADKINS (correct name uncertain) and SARAH SHOOPMAN. Any information concerning this family will be much appreciated, and I am willing to exchange Adkins information with anyone.

She looked very much indian! So does some of her sisters and brothers.Her mother was born in Scott Co. Originally born a GOODMAN. Her mother was born a LOWE(SALLEY ANN) sometime around 1872. BEDIE GOODMAN was born in 1895. She died in Rossville,Ga. Any clues would be appreciated. Ron
