A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Adkins ...
Although we found mention of Adkins during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Adkins was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Adkins was located in Claiborne Parish, we don't know its actual location within the parish.
We've added Adkins to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Adkins - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Adkins, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Adkins might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Adkins would be found within the (318) area code.
