I am trying to tie down some loose strings in my family history and hope that someone out there can be of help. The following is what I know for sure:
my parents;Johnie B. Akers b.6-14-1927 Salt Lick,KY Eolah Stone b. 7-19-1932 Midland, Ky m. 3-23-1948
my grand parents; John Wesley Akers b. 2-22-1881 Ironton,Oh first married Julia Mc Clave 5-13-1900 two children J. Finley & Hazel then married Ana B. Sagraves b. 5-13-1886 m. 1-13-1911 eight children, Gladys, Pearl, Lovell, Roxie, Opal, Roy B., V.Lucille, Johnie B.
my ggparents; Crockett Akers b. 1852 Virginia Eliza (Liza Jane) Newsom b. 1862 Virginia They had one child, my grandfather, she then married four more times, had several more children by second husband Robert (Bob) Bently.Other last names include Johnson, Howard, Bond, and Burchett.
What I need more info on: I think that the parents of Crockett Akers were Robert Akers & Elvira ?.They also had a son named John who was a circuit riding preacher and is said never to have married.
John Newman b.? Virginia I have found that a man by this name was granted bounty land in Ohio for service in the Lewis & Clark Expedition. Ellen Mc Kee or Mc Coyb. ????? My aunt Hazel knew this woman and says that she was a full blooded Cherokee Indian who could not speak English.
Do I tie into any of your family lines?Does anyone have info or leads that will help develop this ancestry?There are several more things that I suspect but have no strong evidence for.
