Ron, thank you for the reply.I have just returned from a trip to the ancestral places in KY and IN.I was in the County seat area(Greencastle) altho' I did not know Benjamin was buried there at that time.I visited the Walnut Hill Church and graveyard.I have not been able to prove the parents of Benjamin or Caty, nor in what town each of them was born. You mentioned your line having Thomas Wiley Akers; my grandfather is Garrett Wiley Akers, son of Spencer Collings Akers.The brother I have for Spencer is Thomas J. Akers.Any background info on that from you?In other info submitted on the Net, it shows Abram Harvey Akers as one of the sons of Bedy.What is your understanding of this info?Also, I have info that Benj. and Caty had 9 children (Milly, Jane, Polly, Bedy, ?, ?, ?,?, ? The others may have been Simon; Thomas;Wm. who died young 25 Oct 1815; Katherine b. 1807; and ?Do you have any info on this?
