Seeking information on the Felts family of Surry and Sussex Counties in Virginia.

Iím specifically trying to verify if Elizabeth ďElizaĒ Adkins, wife of Lewis Adkins was related to the Felts family.

My reason for asking is the five (5) members of the Felts family were godparents to three (3) of her children.

Elizabeth/Eliza was born circa 1720. Information abstracted from the Register of Albemarle Parish: Surry and Sussex Counties, VA 1739-1778. The order of birth listed below only represents the order as listed in the Parish registry. (There may have been more children born, however I cannot verify it)

The second child born to Lewis Adkins and wife Eliza was Lewis born 8/22/1745; his godparents were Nathaniel Felts, Nathaniel Felts, Jr., and Sarah Woodland (this Lewis is my direct ancestor)

The fourth child born to Lewis Adkins and wife Eliza was Mary born 2/22/1748; her godparents were Richard Felts, Jane Seat, and Frances Williams

The fifth child born to Lewis Adkins and wife Eliza was William born 8/17/1754; his godparents were Robert Seat, John and Elizabeth Felts

Does anyone have within their family history files, an Eliza or Elizabeth Felts that fits the above description?

Iíve also seen a passing reference regarding Thomas Adkins (the eldest child of Lewis and Eliza Adkins) being the godparent to a child of Nathaniel Felts.

Any help is greatly appreciated,
