  • Notes 
    • UPDATE: 31 MARCH 2007 - PETER ELKINS FATHER WAS JAMES ELKINS WHOMARRIED MARY (POLLY) A. REYNOLDS IN KNOX COUNTY, KENTUCKY. MARY'SPARENTS WERE LIVING IN KNOX COUNTY, KENTUCKY AT THE TIME OF HERMARRIAGE TO JAMES ELKINS. AFTER JAMES ELKINS DIED, MARY RE-MARRIED TOJAMES C. GRAHAM, AND PETER ELKINS WAS RAISED BY HIS UNCLE JOSEPHELKINS. THE SCENERIO GIVEN BELOW WAS DONE IN THE PROCESS OFRESEARCHING THE FAMILY.
      SLJUHL, COMPILER.

      In the 26 August 1850 Federal Census, page 227/114, dwelling 255/258for Salt Creek Township, Jackson County, Indiana, it was noted byJoyce Elkins in her research that there was a Peter Elkins, 15 yearsold listed with the family of Joseph & Tabitha Elkins, however withhis age, Peter Elkins could not have been a son of Joseph & TabithaElkins. Upon re-checking the census record again on www.Ancestry.comthis compiler noted the same findings, and could not find any otherindications of relationship from the original census page. It isstrongly believed by this compiler that Peter Elkins is the son ofJames & Mary Polly A. Reynolds Elkins. After James died it was notedthat his son William H. Elkins was living with Amaziah Elkins, andsince Joseph is Amaziah's brother (both Amaziah & Joseph are sons ofWilliam & Rhoda Elkins) it's quite possible that James's son Petermight be living with Joseph & Tabitha Elkins as well during the 1850census year.

      Peter Elkins disappears in all of the census records after 1850. Itis assumed that he died young.
