About Family of Jack & Patrick Atkins
Thank you for visiting our site.

Patrick and I are part of the Atkins/Atkinson family of Fentress County, Tennessee.  Other surnames in our family tree include Adkins, Overstreet, Norman, Key, Peters, Hall, Stephens, Kennedy, Howard, Jones, Branstetter, Letsinger, Bowden, Mullinix and Wilson.  All of these branches have roots on Tennessee's Cumberland Plateau as well as in Virginia and North Carolina.  

This site, and my research, are works in progress.  I have gathered much of my data from the Find A Grave and Family Search websites.  Both are good resources, but not always accurate or complete.  As time permits, I will correct errors and fill in gaps.

My DNA test of late 2020 shows I share similar YDNA with men who trace their lineage back to William Adkins, Sr. (1689-1754) of Henrico County, Virginia.  I am most interested in connecting my 4th GGF Joel Atkinson (1780-1833) to William Sr.

Family research exposes gaps and questions.  I am constantly editing and rewriting the stories as I find additional and more accurate information - or further questions.   

I thank Patrick for his interest in our ancestors and coming along with me for drives over the beautiful Cumberland Plateau as we search out old homeplaces and burial sites.  Those times are my favorite.
