I have no idea if this information will help or not. I have a Sarah Akers born prior to her father's death in 1841.Her father was Walter Virgil Akers born ca. 1819, married Harriet Compton 25 September 1837 in Lauderdale County, Alabama.They had 3 children prior to his death in 1841, James W. Akers, Alice Akers, and Sarah L. Akers.
I have seen 2 marriages forSarah Akerses during late 1850's listed in Lauderdale County, Alabama. One was to a Charles Rousseau and the other was to a William Williams. I had assumed that one of these was the Sarah Akers above. But, it might not have been.
Walter and family lived within 10 miles of Alabama, Tennessee state line. One of his brothers lived in Giles County, Tennessee for a while, in fact, died there.
At least oneof Walter Virgil Akers's siblings went to Missouri.
