Lonnie Akers lived in Bluefield and has a son ,Ronald Akers,which still lives there.He is the only other Akers I have ever met (other than my dad's brothers). My aunt, Delores Akers Beaston, lives in Bluefield also.My grandparents are deceased. My dad and his brothersmoved to South Carolina in the 60's.
