The Thomas Akers who married Susannah White was son of Uriah Akers and Elizabeth Smith.He and brothers Abner, John and Isaac moved west to Barren Co., KY.I descend from Isaac.Isaac married Lucinda Elliott in Barren Co. and moved to Alabama for a short while and then later to Henry County, TN where he died in 1839.
Uriah is son of Simon Akers, Jr., b. abt 1695-96 spoken of in one of these earlier messages.
Here are some notes from Augusta Co., VA about Simon. In 1746 -- Simon Acres appd. Roadoverseer; vice, Wm Kerwin. In 1746 -- Wm. Kervine -- Constable -- vice, Simon Acres -- Geo. Robinson's Co.
18th June 1747 -- Daniel Monahan to Simon Akers, 1 year's keeping his child, 4 pounds.Paid John Bird. (This was apparently paid out of the proceeds from the sale of Daniel Monahan's estate in 1744 where William and Simon Akers are listed as purchasers.Perhaps John Bird was the estate trustee for the said child.)
