Alice, I am also researching Eliza.Eliza's maiden name was Newman and she was born ca. 1864. She was first married to my great-grandfather, David Crockett Akers. Their son and only known child, my grandfather, was John Wesley Akers who was born in 1852 in Ironton, Ohio. Crockett Akers died in 1885 and Eliza married Bob Bentley with whom she had several children.Her son Robert is said to have died in World War 1. My father used to talk often of Uncle Mose Bently who moved to Ohio and lived there until his death. What I am trying to find and document at this time is her Newman family.It is my understanding from family stories that she was married five times.According to my Aunt Hazel, the list was Akers, Bentley, Johnson, Bond and Burchett (my dad says there was another husband named Howard). She was married to Bob Burchett when she died in Carter Co., KY. Family stories say that she was the daughter of an Irish immigrant and a Cherokee woman named Mc Kee or Mc Coy but so far, I have not found anything to substantiate this. Would love to correspond with you about Grannie Bentley!
