In 1816 John Akersof Patrick Co VA (presumed to be son of William E. IV) bought a tract of land that straddled the Cumberland-Buckingham Co. line. Sellers were Nathaniel, Samuel and Mary Brown. Nathaniel and Samuel had inherited the land from Robert Brown, who was also the father of John Akers' wife, Sarah. But, who was Mary? It sounds like it could be her dower, but I have Sarah'smother as Lucy (unk) Brown. John and Sarah Akers eventually ended up in Gwinnett Co GA.
