My gg grandma was Victoria Clay Akers Rogers. In reality she wasa clay, being born to Andrew Jackson Akers and Jincy Clay. Just wanted to know if anyone has ever heard of a Tom Akers, who may have taken his stepfather's name Rogers, who lived in Floyd county Kentucky in 1906-1912. He was Victoria's ONLY child with her first husband James Marion Akers, who died in the Civil War in 1864. Tom was rumored to have the very special power of stopping blood, by just saying a phrase. There is also talk of a indian medicene book, and blackhawk indian blood in this family. If someone shall reply I will speak more, if you think this is your Tom, or your family. Vicky's second husband was Sylvester Rogers. Three of her children were Lucinda, George, and Rosa, all born in Kentucky. Willing to share.
