William Riley Akers married his first wife Willa in Mercer Co. where they had several children. Everette, William Paul, Dale, Dacel, Dilard, Geroge Peyton (my Dad), Opal Pearl, Josie, Beahua. He remarried after Willa died in her early 30's to Virgina Harrah . They had more children..Carrie, Lonnie, and Pamela of Alderson. George Peyton Akers lived in Beeson, Wv and was retired from UMWA. William Riley Akers may have had a grandparent that was an American Indian. We are not sure. He was born around 1900. My Father Geroge died in 1985. I would like to know where we came from and anything about my Grandparents. Thank you.
