Peggy, Were you able to find any additional information on your Aker family?
I was curious about my hubby's friend and was trying to find out more about him and ran across your queries. I found a Jack E. Aker in District 16, Gibson, Tennessee. Also in his household are wife Annie and the following household: Mary R and William Aker, both 21; Ossie, 18; Elvy, 15; Jesse E, 10; Lonnie Alexander, 4 9/12; Howard Alexander, 18; and a Thelma Kee, 15.
I think this Jesse E. Aker is my hubby's friend, Jesse Aker, about whom I have some additional information.
