Hi David I know what you mean about this family I have found so much info on them ie same peoples names living and dying in Floyd or Montgomery KY and unless KY was part of VA no way. I found Williams Will where its spelt Akurs. I also found info on the land grant he got in 1665 in old Rapahonnock and there seems to be an error there its spelt Aires but believe it to be him. Tried reading it online that washopeless and because doing this as a favor for William Akers can't afford to buy a copy from Library of VA. I have seen Earl Akers website personally didn't find much relating to William Akers the first. Did find in England a Will Akerode born May 1640 at Heptonstall,Yorkshire,England just seemed a strange name and you never know they could of changed it. There are so many spelling for this name in England. Checked all ships nothing yet.If you send me what you have I'll compare what I have for you. Email me at email@example.com then I can send you what I have downloaded on this family from my research so far.
