The location with Butler Co., Ohio fits in. But the year of 1825 doesn't fit unless John and Valentine were twins.I have some info on John which I acquired from a writing my mother had. I also have some from another Akerman who lives close by. Do you feel comfortable emailing back and forth?I think we have something here possibly. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.orgI have John's father, Valentine, born 2/17/1798 and married Catherine Schreiner, 6/17/1821 at Bayern Pfalz, Bruinigweiter,Ger. John married Catherine Lentz 2/4/1849 in Ia.I haven't tried tracking records in Ohio as it's hard from another state.I live in Ottumwa, Ia. about 20 miles from where John Akerman settled.You have my interest.
