Do you have more info on the Thomas Akers. There was a Thomas Akers in Lauderdale Co. Ala. in 1818. He was mentioned in the early court records of Giles Co., Tn. when he appeared for William White, along with Jesse Pratt. Thomas Akers was in Ala. in 1818 as well as Asahel Akers.Thomas is listed in the 1820 census but Asahel is not. Asahel remained in Ala. while Thomas moved on to Ky. - Livingston and Crittendon Counties.I feel that they are brothers but have no proof and can find nothing of Asahel prior to 1818 land entry. Asahel was a brother-in-law to both William White and Jesse Pratt. If you have any info that would point me in a direction I would really appreciate it.
