Carol, I just started on this genealogy research. I recognise your name, I think I saw you when I was very small & yellow-haired, decades ago! I have been wanting to contact you. My father is Brian C. Akers, (his sister is Beverly), and my grampa: William Akers from Maine, died in Massachussetts. My brother is Bruce William Akers, you may remember him as a child, if you remember me. I think you know of my stepmother, Barbara (Cross) Akers? The genealogy she did for me shows I descend from Chester Francis Akers & Marion Beatrice Peacock. Somewhere, sometime, I heard about 4 Akers brothers who came to this continent & split up, one dropped the 's', so I think that I am related, even if distantly, to most people named Akers or Aker, through that story. I would love to hear any stories about the 4 Akers brothers & who & when that was? I have many more questions.... Carol, I would love to hear from you!
