My 2nd great grandmother was America Adkins. She was born in 1858 in Scott, Putnam County Virginia. Her father was Luke Adkins and her mother was Rebecca Lovejoy. When she was 24 she married John Wesley Snodgrass. The two of them had eight children in 16 years. Two of her girls, Minerva and Mary would go on to marry the Fizer boys in a double wedding.
It is always sad to me when there isn’t much information about the female ancestors. Leaving recipes, and notes that are passed down in a family are important clues about the personality of a person. I would love to know more about America. Why didn’t she marry earlier than 24? Are there any photos of her? If you know anything additional about Ameirca Adkins Snodgrass please let me know.
