Hi Nancy, I just emailed you privately but I wanted to post this also just in case someone else could use the information. I have a Landon Akers b. c1855 (as per the 1860 Floyd Co. VA census. His parents were Floyd Akers b. 1827 Floyd Co. VA (as per 1850 census) and Elizabeth Reed b. 1828 Floyd Co) They were married 12/6/1848 FLoyd Co. VA as per the Family Tree Maker Marriage Index: KY, NC, TN, VA, WV, 1728-11850 (disk #229). I am sorry but I have not been able to trace Floyd or Elizabeth further back. I would appreciate any info that you might be able to share on the Akers. My ancestors are David Akers Abt. 1835 died at Battle of Gettysburg, Adam Akers b. 1779 and Blackburn Akers Abt. 1812.
1850 FLoyd Co. VA census visitation# 663 1860 Floyd Co. VA cenus visitation# 1024
Landon had the following sibblings. Julian "July" b. c1850 (male) Amos b. c1854 Vica b. c1856 (female) Nancy J. b. c1857 Sarah M. b. c1860
