I am a descendant of Abraham Akerley, born 04 May 1767, in Gagetown, New Brunswick, Canada - married to Ann Delong probably around May 4th 1816. It seems he changed his name from Coombes to Akerley (father was Edwin Coombes). Recently went to St Leonard where other Akerleys are gathering info as well. Related to Walsh's in Mass as well. Would like to hear from any other Akerleys in this line.
