As far as I know there are no records proving Kiziah an Adkins or any other maiden name. When I started work on the book I assumed that anyone doing research on a particular family would only put out what was proven. An old researcher in Virginia was carrying Kiziah as a Mallory. It turned out he had zero proof.

As you know the records of women were not kept as well as those of men. Lots of reasons for this-the man was legally responsible, he owned the possessions, etc.. However, I am 99% convinced that Elizabeth[married Thomas Childers} and Kiziah were children of Parker and Mary. Their birth dates fit perfectly with the other children of Parker.

Both came to the Cabell/Wayne area same as Parker's other children. Kiziah came after husband died and settled among all the other Adkins. She bought land from Jesse Adkins and she is buried in a cemetery that is the oldest and was primarily an Adkins cemetery.

As to Elias and Susanna being first cousins-this happened a lot. The folks lived on the frontier and when their kids were grown up everyone in miles were related. I have never done any family in depth that that there were not first cousin marriages.'
