Atkins Family, I am in Scotland for 2 weeks to discover!

Post by PatriceV » Sun Aug 07, 2016 8:45 pm

Has anyone information about the Atkins family ancestry and history? My grandmother was Annie Corrine Atkins Villastrigo, married to George Preston Atkins, whose father James Everet Atkins, moved to USA from Scotland. I am in Scotland for a couple of weeks. My London cell is 07399311328
Thank you so much! Patrice

Hi Patrice,

[TS_welcome]

Do you have a year (or estimated range of years) when you expect James Everet Atkins to have been born? I don't see any obvious sign of his birth on http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk. Also, do you know when he left Scotland, to see if he can be found in any of the censuses.

All the best,

AndrewP

A look at the 1900 USA census shows J E Atkins was born in North Carolina around 1835. He lists his parents as also being born in North Carolina.

I'm still trying to find them in earlier census records.

Annette
