This information might help. If it does, I can provide additional information on the Barnes side, if you are interested. I think that I have a photo of Seb Ake's gravestone in Macedonia Cemetery.
Let me know if this helps,
Descendants of Claiborne Ake
Generation No. 1
1.CLAIBORNE1 AKE was born Abt. 1811 in Tennessee, and died in Georgetown, TX.He married PHEBE STANDIFER August 08, 1834 in Pulaski Co., AR, daughter of JESSE STANDIFER and PHEBE.She was born Abt. 1814 in Alabama, and died in Georgetown, Tx.
Notes for CLAIBORNE AKE:
The original Ake people probably emigrated from Germany around 1790, with the name of "Eck" and aglicized it to "Ake".
1840 Census for Arkansas lists Clayborn Ake in Johnson Co., about 29 years old.
1850 Census for Arkansas, p. 571, line 7 # 30:lists Clayborne 39, Phebe 36, William 14, Malvina E. 11, Jesse T. 8, Seborn 5, Sarah A. P. 8months (she was born in 1849). Lists Clayborne born in TN and Phebe in AL. Live in Big Creek twp, Crawford Co., Arkansas. Interestingly, Sarah Ake Barnes lists, in the 1900 Texas census that both her parents were born in Arkansas. All the children were born in Arkansas.
Also listed in census 1850 Arkansas are Grundy Ake, 40, John C. 40, John W. 27, Joseph H. 56 and wife Elizabeth 46. They are all probably related. Check this out. All of these Akes list their birth states as Tennessee. John C. Ake, 40 (farmer) born in TN, wife Sara, 40, born KY, children: Thomas 14, MS, George 11 AR, Margaret, 13, MS, Lethe (?) 9 AR, Eliza 6 TX, Clemetine 4 AR, Lofrona (?) 2 AR, Amanda D 3 months AR (Crawford Co. 1850 census p. 884). Joseph H. Ake 50 farmer TN, wife Elizabeth 46 KY, Nancy A. Mitchell 25 TN, William M. Ake 21 AL, Anibel C. Ake 12 AL, Sara M. Mitchell 6 AR, Frances Mitchell 5 AR, Hannah C. Mitchell 2 AR (first name hard to read). Grundy F. 40 farmer (property worth $3000 according to census) born in Tenn, wife Mary B 30 TN, Napoleon B 13 TN, Virginia 11 AR, Ann M. 9 AR, William R. 7 AR, Charles J. 3 AR, Joseph H. 7 months AR, also 4 laborers.
The Automated Archives at the Clayton Library, Houston TX list Clabern M. Ake as owning 40 acres of land in Johnson Co. Arkansas, dated 10 July 1848. This source also lists John Ake (maybe kin) as marrying (1) Nicy Rose on Oct. 12, 1844, then (2) Bethany Stephens June 30, 1847. Both listings indicate Franklin TN (I think this is where the groom was born). This source also lists Akes in Sussex County DE in the 1790 census. However, I show this as Baltimore Hundred (Twp) in Delaware (?). Then there are Akes and Standifers in the Soldiers REcords as Volunteer U.S. soldiers, Military Records 1784-1811.
Clayton Ake has Social Security records.
Notes for PHEBE STANDIFER:
Listed in 1880 census of Williamson Co., Tx. twice! The first listing is with James M. and Eliza J. Barrett. She's listed as mother-in-law (of James), 68, born in AL, father born in VA, mother born in TN. The second listing is with A.J. (probably Seaborn) Ake and wife Nancy E. and children. It lists her as 68, born in AL, no birth places for parents; lists her as mother (of Seaborn).
