William and Elizabeth Parker Adkins and family moved westward in 1740 to what is now Franklin County, Virginia. (This area was part of Brunswick County in 1740 then Lunengery County in 1746, then Halifax County in 1752, then Pittsylvania County in 1767, to Hendry County in 1776 and now, finally, Franklin County since 1785.)
This move westward was part of the white man's first penetration across the Blue Ridge Mountains. They lived in the Snow Creek District on the Harping and Story Creeks on the Pigg River. William became a land owner/farmer then changed occupations by becoming a mill operator. (Mill operating became a family profession.) The deaths of William and Elizabeth Parker Adkins aren't clear, Elizabeth disappears after 1740 and William disappears after 1753 in Franklin County, Virginia. Their exact death dates are unknown.
