Rear axle bolt tight? chain adjuster bolts set, rear axle still moves?!

Maybe the bearings are shitbeaten. There should be a big washer behind the axle nut.

I don't know if this will matter or not but when you are doing your adjustment you are counting the marks from the back to the front correct?

BTW, these adjusters make adjusting the chain a snap. No more using 2 wrenches, doesn't move when you tighten the axle nut. real easy stuff.

wheel bearings are knackered, or the spacer that sit between the bearings (inside the hub) is missing, which if it is your bearings are toast as well anyway

Make your own. Install the new bearings, measure the distance between them, and cut a new spacer from stock at a metal supply house.
Or, spend $30.
