Britton Tyre Adkison, Sr. is the son of William Nathan Adkison & Sarah (Lee) Adkison. He married Sarah Ann "Sallie" Beasley on 13 Dec 1804 in Richmond, Robeson Co., NC. They had at least 12 children:

William Nathan Adkison II (1806-1864)
Daniel B. Adkison (c1808-1860)
Britton Tyre Adkison, Jr. (1809-1884)
Barbara Green (#2) Adkison (c1812-1858)
John E. Adkison (1817-1890)
Elizabeth Jane "Eliza" Adkison (c1820-1860/64)
Duncan Adkison (1820-1908)
Thomas Jefferson Adkison (1821-1908)
Sarah Matilda Adkison (1825-1909)
James Adkison (1826-1888)
Susan Adkison (c1829-1860)
Roxinia Ann "Roxie" Adkison (c1831-1900)

Early settlers crossed the Chattahoochee River at Eufaula, AL on a ferry operated by Indians. Britt became provoked at the ferry charges and quarreled with the Indians, striking a chief on the head with an iron stirrup which ended the dispute. That night the women of the party were anxious, fearing the Indians treachery might attempt to harm them, but no trouble resulted.

In 1837, Britt signed up for a 3 mos. stint and served from Jul-Nov 1837 as a Private in the Creek (Indian) War; Muster-In at Ft. Mitchell, AL, Capt. Justice's (2d) Co., Wellborn's Regiment of Alabama Mounted Volunteers.

He was a Captain in an Indian War in South Carolina.
