I have been on pens and needles waiting for a reply to my query. I sur hope you can help. I had never seen a picture of my aunt Dora McBride Maddy Adkins until about two years ago and a cousin from Michigan gave me a picture of my aunt Dora and Uncle Oscar that was made while uncle Oscar was in the military. since then I have thought about trying to find Ray's family. I saw him once while I was at my cousin Nancy Buckland house in Hinton when he was reading the meter but I did not know him until Nancy told me who he was but he had already gone up the street and i did not get to talk to him. I sure wish now that I had followed him up the street just to say "HI" and tell him I was one of his many cousins. Nancy and I was going to go see him when I came back to Hinton but Nancy went to Maryland and while there she had surgery and never woke up. I miss not knowing this part of my family. I was born at True and graduated from Hinton High School in 1960. Let from the area and now I live in Nemours, West Virginia. If Ray's children would like to meet me, I would feel so very gratiful and happy. Any info you would give me would be great. thanks so very much for your time.

Punkie, may or may not be a connection here but my wife's cousin, Erie Adikins married Irene McBride. Irene's dad's name was Oscar. Keep in mind that we are in our 80s so that was awhile back.

Erie's parents were Maude and Seldon Adkins. Lived out on Elk Knob when my wife lived down there.

Kinda waiting to ask about another brother, Batey(?). Don't want to derail Punkies quest. He has or had a heavy equipment business of some sort. I knew Dempsey and we spent the night with him in Ohio. He is gone now as well as Dicey. I was acquainted with Donnie and Martha.

Dicey made big ol' cathead biscuits that were so light ya had to hold them down on your plate!

Thanks for getting back in touch with me. I would love to meet you and all your family if that would be possible. I will meet anywhere you say, in public, at my house, at your house, anywhere. This is part of the family that I never knew but now I am searching for any and all family members. I am retired so I can go about any time after this Thursday. My brother in law passed away Sunday in Richmond Virginia and I am heading down there tomorrow for his funeral Wednesday. Again, thanks for answering a long long prayer.

Not sure if you are referring to me or one of the other posting here. Anyhow, the good Lord willing and the creeks dont rise, my daughter and I will be in Hinton on the 2nd/3rd of August.

All i know about the Adkins is what I have heard my wife tell.

Maude and Seldon had 8 kids. There must be a ton of Adkins runnin around down there(G)

~ OMG ~ finding this on topix is hard to believe... Ray Adkins was my grandpa! Ray and Naomi Adkins have a son (Keith Adkins) who is my father. Yes they did live on Hill Street in Hinton, WV and unfortunately both have passed away.:( I was very close to them both, as I was always "PaPa's girl" and my grandmother (Naomi) was very special to me. I am now 25 years old and live in Shady Spring, WV and often see my father along with other family members in Summers County. I was very young whenever my PaPa passed away, and was always told by everybody that he was such a good hearted person with lots of care for others, which I fully believe because my grandmother was the same way. I really miss them both very much.:(

Hello, am sorry that it has taken me this long to find this post. I would like to talk with you about the family as I have been looking for years on this one family. I have written a book on the McBride's and the Ferguson's and would love to have you in there also. I would be willing to meet with you to get the info from you on the family and just to meet someone from my Aunt Dora's family would be a thrill of a lifetime. My Dad was Levi, the youngest son of the McBride family. All of them are gone now but I would love to have their memories live on. You may contact me at [email protected] Am lloking forward to hearing from you.

Sorry, it has taken me so long to get back to you. I just thought I would look one more time to see is anything was on the topix about Ray Adkins and his family. I would love to talk to you and get some family info if I could. I have written the McBride and the Ferguson family history books and would like to have you all in there. I am the daughter of Levi, the youngest of the McBride sons of Elijah Walker McBride and Nancy Permelia Ferguson McBride. Dora McBride Maddy Adkins was my Aunt. I now do have a picture of her. You may contact me at [email protected] would love to hear from you. Thanks for posting on this sight.
