The first record that I have of a Akers moving to Missouri is that of Sylvester Akers, 1834-1912.He was the son of Soloman Akers, Jr. and Matilda Meade of Floyd Co., KY.He lived and died in Rayton, Jackson Co., MO.Buried in the West Rock Baptist Church Cemetery, Rayton, Jackson Co., MO.
I have 10 children for Sylvester and Matilda.Some stayed in MO, others moved on to Texas.
Sylvester Akers was born on 6 Dec 1834 in Floyd Co KY. He died on 19 Oct 1912 in MO. He served in the military in the Civil War. He served in the CSA and rode with Quantrill for a period of time. He was employed as a trail guide and freighter for several years while a young man.
I do not have the connection to your family YET.As time permits, I will do some research.I am almost positive that you will come from this family.
