Bobby, My g-grandfather was George Edwin Akers. Uncertain about dob but married Haydie Jones Rives at Sherman, Texas in 1888. Moved to Lehigh, Indian Territory, Ok. sometime before 1890. Granted a patent on an improved suspension bridge in Ok. in 1890. Might have moved to SW Arkansas after that. That's about all I know about him. If you have any info on this line of the family, would love to hear from you.
