Lizzie Adkins, we suspect was the mother of Mary Morris and slave of John T. Morris, born abt. 1839.   The 1880 census reflects that Mary Morris was listed as a black servant in the Morris household that included a family member named Edger (born in 1875) giving further speculation that said person was likely a patron or boyhood friend of Luther Atkins (born in 1879) who gave his first-born son (born abt 1898) the said name.  The Morris family apparently were owners of one or more Adkins offspring of Fannie Adkins.
