I am researching Akers relatives in Baker Co., Oregon who migrated from Missouri. It seems that your ancestors may have followed the same migratory route. Do you think they might possibly be related?If I am not mistaken Bedy Akers was in Tn. prior to his moving to Mo. My Akers family migrated from N.Ala. into west Tn. and into upper W. Tenn.and then into Missouri. James Madison Akers was born 1829 in Ala. and died 1915 in Baker Co., Oregon.Any info or lead is deeply appreciated.
