Nathaniel Akers, b, 1832, VA d. 1897, OH. Married to Louisa Jackson, in WV, Fort Gay, 1853. "Nathan" served in Civil War, Union, F 14 KY Inf. Vols., enlisting in Nov 1861, honorably discharged 1865. He was a musician (fife) for the Company. Nathan is buried in Vernon Furnace Cemty....I wished I lived close enough to visit and decorate his marker with flags and flowers.I have never seen a picture and only heard his name in the few years I've been researching.He was my G grandmother's father.I wish I knew more about him.
If anyone happens to visit the cemetery this holiday, look for his marker and say a prayer for me. Blessings Beverly
