Nancy Sue Webster was the first wife of James B. Akers. (This coincides with a name given to me by Pearl Akers Acton ca 1985.) After Nancy's death, it appears that he went on to marry Sarah Angel on 28 Oct 1840. Maybe she is the mother of Jonathan, Maranda, and Lucy. When Sarah died, James married 3rd Selina Woods. Selina is listed as the mother on Maranda's 1857 marriage record when Maranda was age 16, and then on her 1933 death certificate in Dallas TX. It is thought that since Selina spent most of Maranda's life as her mother, she would naturally list her as her actual mother. Sarah Angel is certainly the biological mother given Maranda's birth date of 1 Jan 1842, which is 13 months after Sarah married James B on 28 Oct 1840.
