I recently received the book, ordered through Amazon.There are definite discrepancies between the A.E. Akers and Earl B. Akers concerning the William Akers.
A.E. States that William Akers I, was in NJ, Earl B. Akers has a will from Essex County, Va listing 2 children, William & Ann Akers Smith and a granddaughter Elizabeth.
A.E. Akers lists William the first having a son Simon.Simon had 3 sons, Simon 2nd, Robert & John.John had a son William 2nd, and Robert had a son William 3rd.William 3rd married Elizabeth Martye of PA and had a son William 4th who married Polly Blackburn.
Earl B, shows Wm 1st m. Katherine ?, they had a son Wm 2nd who m. Ann ?They had a son Wm 3rd who m. Susannah Blackburn and they had a son Wm 4th who married Polly Blackburn a cousin of Susannah's.
I am a descendant of John Akers, the son of William and Polly.John married Sarah Kelley in Franklin County, VA and had several children before moving to the Atlanta area of Georgia.
At this point, I have no idea which of these authors are correct.I spoke with Earl several years ago and was not aware until recently that he had passed away.
