S/O Charles "Charlie" Adkins and Minerva Jane Dingess. See Charles and Minerva in the family links.

2nd Husband of Hollena Conley married 10 Dec 1918 in Logan County, WV. The marriage record gives her given name as Helen but, that is not compatible the 1920 and 1930 census records. Ben's certified hospital death cert also shows her name as Hollena.

THE PROJECT 2000 kids of Harts High School, Harts, WV. cemetery read states "he, Ben, went insane". That appears to be confirmed by the hospital death cert.

Hollena b. about 1893 in Lincoln County, WV. & d. unknown was a D/O James Coon Conley b. unknown & d. unknown and Martha Alford b. about 1874 & d. about 1966.

Hollena married 1st husband Charley Workman before 1916. As of Oct 2009 I did not find a marriage record for Charley and Hollena.

Children of Charley and Hollena are: Victory "Vick" Workman b. about 1916 in WV. As of Oct 2009 I did not find a birth record for Vick. Vick is identified as Ben's step-son on the 1920 and 1930 census records.
