Ben Adkins and family lived at Deer Head Cove.  He farmed and also had a big blacksmith shop.  He made farm tools and wagons.  He made a wagon and traded it for a calendar clock that is still keeping good time today.  He tanned his own leather and made shoes for his family.


They were the parents of nine children – Smith, George, Morris, Enock, Laura, Tennie, Malvina, Margaret and Mary.
