Yes it was common to see the same people registered in different places only because the county boundries changed. However, David Adkins left the Greenbrier Co., VA(WV) area around 1810 and moved to what is now Lawrence Co., KY. Since David was born (see below)in VA that was never a par of Kentucky no double bookkeeping is possible.
Regarding BFT Adkins I only know what the Ronnie Adkins and The Turner papers reported. As to the accuracy I know that both David Turner and his children are considered expert genealogist. Ronnie Adkins is a direct descendant of the William Adkins and Elizabeth Parker lieneage and lived in Wayne Co., WV until he joined the USAF. He had a lot of paper documents and family that helped put the story together.
