William Atkins, born about 1815, Pennsylvania, is my 3rd great-uncle, and brother of gg-g Thomas Otho Adkins. We haven't found William, who apparently died in Cincinnati before 1850 -- see http://www.adkins9.net/individual.php?pid=I227 -- but we HAVE found his daughters, Chevalier E. 'Chevie' Atkins (Donaldson) & Margaret A. Atkins (Botto,) who were raised by their mother, Julia Ann Swick and step-father, Oliver Thorpe. Family records tell us "Wm. Atkins... daughter m. John Davidson, in the Commercial Gazette office." Letter of Florence Adkins Nelcamp, October, 1929. Any info welcome.
