ATKINSON


This family, or rather the Widow Atkinson, came from Sampson County, North Carolina, with her children, about the last of the eighteenth century, and settled near where Miller's Church now stands. She had three sons, Jessee and two others, names not ascertainable, and one daughter, if no more; she married Nat, or Elias Miller, one of whom was the founder of Miller's Church, and for whom that church was named, and is still called and known by that name.
