Looking for information on the family of Elijah Atkins, Sr. and his wife Tirza Cooley.
Elijah is likely the son of Soloman and Thankful (Lee) Atkins – any information to support this?
Elijah Sr. was born 1806 in CT (Likely Middletown) and died in 1851.
He and his wife Tirza (abt. 1776 to 1854) are buried in Georgetown Baptist Church Cemetery in Madison Co., New York.
4 Children born in Marlboro, VT:
1. Elijah Atkins, Jr. (1806 to 1887). Died in Coldwater, Branch Co., MI. No issue found.
2. Lyman Barnes Atkins (1799 to ?). Likely married to Cordelia Bissell. Lived in Wilmington and Brattleboro.
3. Phylinda Adkins (1801 - ?). Married to John Binnay and lived in Wilmington
4. Hannah Shattuck Adkins (1804 - ?) Is this the Hannah who married Franklin Talmage in Brattleboro in 1823/4?
Can anyone provide any more information about this family? Thanks!
