Akersville is located in south-central Pennsylvania (Fulton County)on Rt 915 about four miles south of the intersection of 915 and Rt 30.It is a small farming community and is not on the state road map.
Based on information supplied by Bob Collins, the first Akers in the area were Ralph and Abiah Akers.Ralph was born in 1728.The men (believed to be brothers)secured patents from the State of PA for adjoining tracts in Providence Twp., Bedford County October 26, 1785.
Ephriam Akers I, Ralph's son, was born in 1761.He secured two patents - one for a tract called Akersburg and the second called York.There is an old stone house on the hill overlooking Akersville which may have been built by Ephriam.
A Methodist Church was built in 1858. There is a church (and small graveyard) in Akersville today, but I don't know if this is the original church.
I have a little additional information if anyone is working on this branch of the Akers family.
