I remain interested in proving your Atkins (through Robert of Prince Edward
Co VA) connect to my Atkins (via Robert's probable brother William also of
Prince Edward VA). I understand you only have circumstantial evidence that
Robert is in fact the father of John & Joseph. DNA can prove the

If any male Atkins descendant of the Brockman marriages attends your
reunion, please have him get in touch with me because making a link in our
Colonial past is as simple as finding his "Y" DNA matches mine.

As an additional bit we do have a result from a supposed descendant of
John/Joseph/ Atkins/Brockman. and he does not match anyone who has ever
tested at Family Tree DNA. Your line may be a new Genetic Atkins group, or
theirs may have had a "non Paternal event" which is yet to be solved.

Best wishes for your reunion,
Kyle Atkins

We are beginning to make plans for the Riddell Reunion which will be held
Apr 29 thru May 1st somewhere near Choctaw Co., MS., with plans to research,
share, field trips and attendance at Homecoming at Bluff Springs Baptist
Church in Choctaw Co. on May 1st.

We must very quickly get our name on the list for "housing".

If you would like to put your name on the list to stay at the "Reunion"
hotel and would like to be considered in the block of rooms, please let me
know by Friday, March 25th.

This is our first priorty - picking a Reunion hotel and blocking some rooms
but we need to know approximately how many people are considering staying at
the Reunion hotel - not cast in stone.

If you plan to join us at the Reunion hotel, please let me know how many
rooms you and/or your family might need. We will block some rooms off but
each family will be responsible for making their own reservations. We need
to know how many rooms so that we can hopefully get some perks in our rates
and amenities.
