    Notes 
    • In the 1850 census David is listed as David Atkins Jr., After finding David and Laura`s marriage bond record I desided to look for David`s parents in Rockingham Co., North Carolina. In 1820 I found a record for David Atkins with the father missing. In the record just above there is a women listed and there is a mark for a man 16/26. My guess is that they put the mark for David`s father in the wrong place. In looking for a boy David`s age in 1830 I could not find his father. I did find a record for Jane Atkins with one child, a boy 10/15, David was 12 in the 1830 census. In 1840 I found David and Laura and a women that I believe was David`s mother.
