Notes for James M. L. Adkins
His death certificate records James Adkins, age 74 years 9 months 18 days, born 4 March 1854 iin Rowan Co., Ky, died 22 Dec 1930 in Haldeman, Rowan Co., Ky, married, husband of Martha Adkins, occupation brick worker, father Greene Adkins, mother’s maiden name Clarand Fultz, both born in Rowan Co., Ky, cause of death angina pectoris, informant Mrs. Martha Adkins, wife, Haldeman, Ky, burial in Bowen Chapel.
He was listed in the censuses as age 1 in 1860 and age 11 in 1870, so he was probably really born in 1859 or 1858. I have not found a birth record for him.
Be careful not to confuse him with James M. Adkins born 15 Oct 1859, son of Levi Adkins and Pricy Ann Fultz.
Notes for Martha Ann Weaver
The Kentucky death index lists Martha W. Adkins, age 84, died 25 Mar 1956 in Boyd Co., usual residence Rowan Co.
The W probably stands for Weaver.
