    Home is still there today, but has been moved nearby to this location to avoid floods. (previous?) Owners of house: Benjamin K. & Anna L. Given. Although her death certificate states she died in Mountain State Hospital, Grama Mary is said to have actually died at home in this house (and apparently was "declared" dead later). (At least one living or private individual is linked to this item - Details withheld.)

    • =====
      1910 census from Curry, Putnam, West Virginia showing Mary and Andrew Jackson Atkins (both age 27) married with children of Nada age 2 and Silly [Sally] age 1 month.

      ancestry.com for Mary Frances Horton with a date of death of 1928. The census record was located in Mullins family tree.

      One World Tree shows a Mary Horton (b 1900 d 1928) married to Andrew Adkins. Her father is shown as William Horton and mother as Octavia Egnor b abt 1866, d 1888.

      Nada (Adkins) Strickland (deceased oldest child of Mary Horton Adkins) gave her recollection of her mother's birth as being in Griffithsville, West Virginia; however also said she was born in Putnam County. Currently, Griffithsville is in Lincoln County, but many years ago might have been in Putnam or Cabell counties, as boundaries changed many times.

The census says that Octavia and James were married 12 years...1888. So Mary H. was born 6 years before Octavia and James married. Mary was the daughter of William Horton and Octavia.
