S/O Isabell Adkins. Isabell is identified on Sherwood's marriage record but, his father is not identified.

Oct 2010 I did find an 1840 marriage record in Cabell, VA. for Henderson Adkins to Isabell Adkins. I also found 1850 and 1860 census records for Henderson and Isabell but, their only son, on the records, was Shadrach. Did Sherwood have another first name, middle name or did he change his name.

Sherwood married 1st wife Lucinda 'Cindy' Miller before 1873. As of Oct 2010 I did not find a marriage record but, parents are confirmed in their daughter Nancy's death record.

Children of Sherwood and Lucinda are: Nancy Elizabeth Adkins. See Nancy in the family links.

Sherwood married 2nd wife Mahala Cummings 18 Feb 1880 in Boone County, WV. by Joshua Mitchell.

Mahala b. Aug 1864 in WV. & d. unknown was a D/O John Cummings and Lucinda Unknown-Cummings.

Children of Sherwood and Mahala are: John Oley, Charlotte 'Lottie' and Erastus Adkins.

Union private, Company K, West Virginia 7th Cavalry Regiment.
