Seeking info on my wife's grandfather Vint ADKINS B:11 may 1892 we believe in Rockford IL. His father was either Wiley,Wesley,or Wessie his mother was Louisa. We have two brothers names Grover and John.The story we have been given is that the father was a judge in an area called BIG SANDY , but we aren't positive what state (OHIO,WEST VIRGINIA or KENTUCKY). The story continues with the judge rendering a decision that the opposing faction was upset with so they killed all male ADKINS over a certain age and stacked them up like cord wood in the street. This caused the mother Louisa to go into labor and Vint was born but the mother died the same day the judge was killed. Vint in turn was raised by a sister. Thanks Jim
