I am searching for information on Eliza E. Akers, b. 6 June 1856 in Pennsylvania.In the 1870s she has moved to Newport twp, Johnson Co.,Iowa and has a child named Andrew in Oct. 1876.Although she lives with an older man named Frederick Hemstead (Hemsted/Hempstead) he is not believed to be the father of the child.However, they live together until Frederick's death in 1909. Frederick, and his first wife Elizabeth Akers (b. 1814), were both from Pennsylvania (Frederick from York Co.), arriving in Johnson Co. by 1860 via Ohio, moving to Newport twp. from Morse twp. in 1870.According to the 1870 census they lived near a family of Akers: James or John C.(66) b. Penn, wife Martha (49) b. NY, Exia Jane Isop? Crop? b. in Penn.(age 14 in 1870 census), Martha Stowkey? (11) and Euphratia Stowkey (11). I am hoping that someone may know of the relationship of Eliza E. Akers b. 1856, Elizabeth Akers b. 1814,Exia Jane Akers? b. 1856, and your Exia Akers b. 1843. Thanks!
