Ther are three or four John Akers in my line of the Akers family. The first I have was the son of William Akers III and Susannah Blackburn. He was born abt 1740.The next was John B., son of Blackburn Akers, born abt 1758. Then comes John the son of Valentine. This John ws born abt 1781. I shall have to browse through Earl Akers' BANYON TREE and Candalee mormon information to find any more. I'll see what I can come up with. My direct email is akers6462@webtv. I am retired Navy living in South Carolina. Born in Lewis County Ky but raised in Floyd County Ky. Let's hear from you.
