Donna,
My Atkins ancestors came from Scotland
starting in about 1828, settled first in
Sombra, Ontario, Canada about 1830. Many moved
on to Port Huron area, St. Clair Co., MI
not too long after.
Daniel/David Atkins (1772-1850) and his wife,
Margaret Wiley (1772-1811) both born in
Lanarkshire, Scotland, married 1792.
One of their sons was John Atkins (1792-1832),
wife Marion Gibb (1792 or 1796-1881), married
in Lanarkshire, Scotland.
One of their daughters was Christina Robe
Atkins (1825-1901) born in Lanarkshire,
Scotland, husband Loren Bailey Forester
(1828-1903) born in Ontario, Canada. Christina
and Loren were my gggrandparents.
Please send me a note if this is the correct
family.

Steve,
I would be interested in knowing more about your branches. I'm searching for lewis Atkins who married Julia Chase abt 1865 in Michigan. I recently found a lewis Atkins listed on a census for Port Huron in 1860. Does he belong to you?
