Update on my research of my Acker/Aker/Akers/Hale line.
A before unknown cousin was located who is the great granddaughter of Henry Hale a brother to John Hale, my great grandfather. She stated that her mother (Mary Quinn) always told her and her brother they were not really Hale. They were AKERS. Her mother told them an Aker was adopted either by Henry Hale or his father John Hale, my great great grandfather.
Any one know of an Akers that was taken in or adopted by a Hale family in KY, TN, or VA?
