I just started researching my AKERS line. My father was Willis Burton AKERS and he died when I was very young, so I don't know much about this side of my family. All that I do know is my grandfather is William Fred(or Frederick)AKERS b. 1 Feb. 1881 d.10 April 1973. He was married to a woman named Mary Eva who was b.1888 d.1922. William lived most if not all of his life in Tennessee. William and Mary had three sons: Willis Burton b.23Dec.1914 d.24 June 1974;Thomas Snow; and James. That's all I know. Sound familiar to anyone? Any help or hints would be greatly appreciated.
