My father's name was James (Jess) Eugene Akerley and my grandfather's name was Stuart Eugene? Akerley and they lived in Montana. My father was a horse trainer, bronc rider,& ranch worker. My father was my world, and as a child I idolized him. But I lost him when I was 11 and only saw him 2 times after that. He "supposidly" was killed in a plane crash off the Allution ? Islands off the Alaskan coast. my Grandfather I never met. He passed on in his 50's from drinking spring water or something. My father hardly ever spoke :) muchless about his family. He loved his brother Ernie but DID NOT like his mother and just did'nt keep in touch with his sisters. BUT, this is leading somewhere:) I lost touch with my family when I was very young and don't even remember their names. But I would love to find them and get to know them as I really dont know any family. Also all of our history. Is their anyone that has photos of my father and grandfather? Also my mothers name was Dorothy Mae (Vondall) Akerley. God rest their souls.
