Does anyone know of the connection of Mary Rhoten (b.1917)to Andrews (b.abt.1910), or his father, John Akers? Family story is that Mary wasbond servant to either Andrew Akers, or his father, John. Marys'first four children were fathered,illegitimatly , by John or Andrew Akers. Mary's daughter, Elizabeth, first married Wlm. McCoy, then McDonald Mead. My husband is descended from Elizabeth and McDonald. Though Elizabethused the maiden name of Rhoten (or Roten), her and McDonald's son, James William Mead put his mother's name as Elizabeth Akers on a delayed birth cert. If anyone has any info. on this, please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post message on forum.
