Hi List, first to let you know Iam researching the Cope name who I believe are descs. of the New Castle CO DE Copes' 1683-1729 and are related to the Bradford, Chester CO PA Copes' who are found as Quakers. I am finding a lot of Quaker desc.s on the 1820 Floyd CO KY census that is online. I have a pamlet of Floyd CO KY marriages1807-1850and this list has 18 Akers/Acres marriage records from 1810-1844. I also have a Montgomery CO VA marriage list with 6 males and 3 female Acres and Akers listed. Iam also interested in the Simon Aker will 9 Mar 1749 listed Augusta CO VA on the Scotch & Irish Wweb site. On the 1782 Montgomery CO VA tax list ( online ) I have the Copes' and found Blackburn Akers and Solomon Akers listed ( this tax list is enumerated ) FYI- Montgomery CO VA- Blackburn Akers marr. Susanna Skaggs 20 Nov 1786 Balckburn Akers marr. Elinor Howard 17 Apr 1797 Thompson Elswick marr. Patsey Acres 28 Sept 1788- I traced these Elswicks' to Augusta CO VA 1746 and they are related to Lorton and these Elswicks are on the 1810-1820 Floyd CO KY census. Thomas Elswick is related to John Elswick died 1748 Augusta CO VA with James Skaggs on his will. This John Elswick was charged with the murder of William CAPE 1746 Augusta CO VA and William Cape is listed killed by chance ?
