    Married 
    • Disambiguation re marriage of Samuel Smith & Mahala Adkins:
         • A John Smith married a Mahala Adkins in 1847, approximately when one would have expected Samuel & Mahala to be married (if a few years late). Some have shown our Mahala as married to a John Smith or a Samuel John Smith; however, there is no evidence of this regarding our Mahala. The following image shows the 1847 marriage record for John & Mahala, some three years after Samuel & Mahala were already having children in her second marriage. This record shows that the Mahala who married John was single and not previously married when marrying John.

  • Notes 
    • In a tape made by George Smith, son of Harvey Smith, he stated that
      Mahala was a widow and that the children listed with this marriage were
      the children that she had before her marriage to Samuel Smith. Jesse Adkins gave the name Allen Adkins of Fayette County as his father on his marriage license in Cabell County, VA. Can not find any other children of Mahala marriage records.
