Jacob Richmond Sr was born in Greenbrier, VA on 12 Sep 1784 to William Cody and Mary (Smith) Richmond. He married Dempsey Adkins on 28 Apr 1808 in Greenbrier, VA.
Dempsey Adkins’ family currently remains a mystery. From her marriage bond the only information I have is that her father is John Adkins. According to the census records she was born around 1790. She is another BRICK WALL ANCESTOR.
Jacob and Dempsey had a large family, one of their children being John Thomas (1815 – 1875). Unfortunately, more on the ground research needs to be completed before I can 100% be sure of all the children they had. I hope to be able to go to Virginia to do some on the ground research for the Richmond family, as well as the Adkins family.
