Bedford Wilkins married Mildred "Milly" Elliott in 1843 in Halifax Co VA. Sometime after 1855 they left VA for Christian Co KY. They are listed in the 1860 Hopkinsville, Christian Co KY Census...however Bedford (household 613)is at bottom of one page and his wife and children are in household 803 at the top of the page. Do the pages get mixed up and numbered after the census was taken?

Their known children---all born in VA:

E P Wilkins (son) b 1844

Richard N Wilkins b 1846

Virginia K Wilkins b 1848

Joanna Wilkinss 1850s (However, later records show this daughter was named Mary Ann b 2 Feb 1850 married Willis Jackson Fuller)

Marshall P Wilkins b 1851

Bedford L Wilkins b 1855

Did the sons serve in the Civil War?
Are there any marriages or death records in Christina Co KY for these folks?
Hope some one can provide me with information on these long lost cousins.

Mary in VA
