I am very much interested in these Marlow, Oklahoma Akers.My g.g. grandfather Lafayette Akers was born in Indiana 1866.He was living in Cooke Co. , Texas by Dec. 1885.(Maybe before still checking census records.)Anyway he ended up in the Marlow/Duncan area during the turn of the century.He served a term in the state Legislature in the 1920's as a representative for Stephens Co.He was also a preacher.I am looking over the 1880 Cooke County census right now.I will post a list of all the Akers found there when I am through.Would love to compare notes with some of you.
