Catherine Adkins Harper parents?
Hi there,

I thought I'd see if you've come across any information on Catherine (Adkins) Harper's parents, Lewis Sr and Catherine Adkins?

I saw that Nancy Acord witnessed the wedding of Catherine Adkins to Hamilton Harper and have been following that lead in hopes of finding my ancestors Lewis Adkins Sr and Catherine 'Caty' (unknown last name). The family trees with Lewis and Catherine are a mess - mixing up several families. I'd sure appreciate any information.

Thank you!

RE: Frances Adaline Tinker Holland
Hi, thanks for your quick reply, and I see you've replaced what was there with my message to you. While it's not exactly what I would have written on the web page itself, I guess it's okay. I'm new at Find A Grave and have never edited anything before. If it's allowed, I'd like to rewrite the text on the page so that it conveys only what is relevant to Francis Tinker Holland. If not, I can surely accept that too.

Frances Adaline Tinker Holland
Hi, I believe some of the information on this page at Payne Gap Cemetery, DeKalb, Alabama, is incorrect. Her first name is spelled Francis, and middle name mostly likely Adeline, with an "E", she was born June 1869, not 1872, and her mother, at least, was not Margaret Ann Milligan Tinker, but Nancy Adeline Smith Tinker. (yes, the same middle name) The daughter of Obediah Tinker and Margaret Milligan Tinker is buried at Pisgah Cemetery, Jackson County, Alabama, as is her father Obediah. Her name is Lucy Frances Tinker Wilson, born 26 Nov 1873, died 30 Dec 1939. All this is correctly identified in Lucy Frances' death certificate sourced under Tennessee Death Records,1908-1958. Francis A. Tinker Holland is identified in every Census as living, both before and after marriage, in Deer Head Cove, DeKalb, Alabama, near where she is buried. Lucy Frances Tinker Wilson, as her father after marriage, is identified in every Census as living in Jackson County, Alabama, where she and her father are buried. There is uncertainty who is the father of Francis Adeline Tinker Holland, as Nancy Adeline Smith Tinker raised several children who were born after her husband was killed in the Civil War. Her husband was James W. Tinker, brother to Obediah. Obediah did not marry Margaret Milligan until Feb 1870, and it is possible Francis Adeline Tinker was his child out-of-wedlock. She is listed in the 1870 Census in DeKalb County with her mother but no male head of household. The 1900 Census lists her with David Holland and born June, 1869. The spelling is always Francis, not Frances.

The 1920 Census shows David Holland, Francis and family just two doors down from my great-grandfather James Frank Wooten whose mother was Malvina Tinker, Francis Adeline Tinker's sister or half-sister. James W. Tinker and Nancy Adeline Smith Tinker are my direct ancestors, thus my connection to this issue.

I thought it appropriate to contact you first before attempting to edit the information on the page.

So sorry
I didn't realize you were going through so much. My heart goes out to you. Stay strong.
I worked with Sandy at the ice cream plant and she is a facebook buddy. I didn't make the connection with her grandson and yours. Sorry again. Take care.

Thank you for posting photos of this couple.

Always nice to place a face with a name. I descend from their cousin Armelta Bellzora (Bell) Watts who married Robert Savage.

I have also transferred Mary, and it would be great if you could add the additional information you have on her.

I got your message.

Your third great-grandfather, Francis Marion Johnson, was my third great-grandmother's brother. I am happy to transfer the memorial for your second great-grandfather, Isaac, who was Francis' son, to you.

Given that we are cousins, it would also be nice if we could look at each other's trees. Mine is on What about yours?

Best wishes,

Coastal Dweller

RE: Charles Frank SMITH-Update
Gwen, Sorry for the delay in responding. I'm having problems with internet connection, so seeing messages has been slow. Thank you for the information and your wonderful enthusiasm. As I recall, Charles Smith's death certificate showed that he had been both widowed and divorced, which raised curious red flags for me. Glad to see you solved some of the mystery of his second wife. Keep me posted.
