A minor bell has been rung here.Apparently in the New Hampshire State Papers vol. 26 there is a referencethe granting of Ferrisburg,VT by Gov. Benning Wentworth of New Hampshire... A number of "Akins" appear on the petition, including Thomas, Josiah, Jonathan, Elisha, John, and David. I have all this on second hand knowledge... I have no idea where these Akins came from or wound up, but I'm trying to find out and I'll let you know if there is any yield.
