It was Ephraim that built the stone house and then fell while building the barn. I had a file on Akersville that my father had compiled but it is presently missplaced or distroyed. (He was Lester Otis, son of Frank West, granson of West Asa Akers) I was trying to find Akersville on the map (for my son) when I ran across a lot of Akersville history contributed by Michael Caldwell to the USGenWeb Archives. I just searched for Akersville PA and found this. My father was in contact with Mrs. T.H. Walters back when she was compiling the information for her book. This information was in the missing file. I do not have her book but would like to.
