I am looking for any Atkins that can trace their ancestry to Samuel Atkins and Rosamond Shacklock. They were married in Swanwick, Derbyshire, England in Dec 1872. Samuel & his brother John died in the Diamond Coal Mine Disaster with 72 other miners on February 16, 1883 in Braidwood, Illinois. Rosamond who is my Great Grandmother came to Scammon, Kansas with her 6 children & married Thomas Montgomery. My family never knew what happened to John's wife and her 2 children.
