About Parker Vincent Adkins

Parker V. Adkins married Mary Polly Fry about 1754 in Halifax County, Virginia. He participated in the Battle of Point Pleasant 1773 (where Bluesky and her family lived) and his name along with his sons Hezekiah and Millington is listed on the Revolutionary War Soldiers Monument in Giles County, Perisberg, Virginia. Family history and Indian records indicate that Littleberry & Charity were the only children of Bluesky and Parker. Both children were taken to the home of Parker either shortly before or after the death of Bluesky. Family history is that when the Battle of Point Pleasant ended, Parker took his children by Bluesky, Littleberry and Charity, back home with him and Mary raised them as her own. Parker and Mary Fry had several other children at the time. One has to assumed that Parker and Bluesky were not "married" by white mans law, but Indian law/customs. Apparently he was married to Mary Fry and according to the birth dates of some of their children, he was either still married and had "an Indian marriage" to Bluesky or just had an affair. -------------------- Parker was in the Revolutionary War - Battle of Point Pleasant. Parker in battle of 1773. Name on momument along with his sons Hezekiah and Millington. Also on monument of Revolutionary war soldiers of Gillis County, Persiberg, Virginia.
