    Seeking information on Elijah Adkins

    Charles Adkins Newbie

      Seeking information on Elijah Adkins born about 1843 in Virginia.  First record of him is a voting registration in Houston, Texas in 1867.  Next record is 1870 Census in Houston, Texas with wife Lizzie (Freeman) Adkins and kids.  I can't find any anything from prior or after these documents for either person.  The voting registration and census record show race\color as B for Black and place of birth as Virginia.  The census show Lizzie as Black and from North Carolina.   I dont know if there are any Freedmen Bureau documents regarding him.  Any documents you can find is appreciated.
