Horace Akers is indeed the son of Achsah Hunt and Henry Akers. He was b April 1, 1825 and d. 21 Aug 1864 and is buried in Andersonville National Cemetary in Georgia. A prison for Union soldiers during the Civil War.
He left behind one son that I'm aware ofFrank Arthur1879-1973 who lived in Templeton, MA.He left behind a daughter Lillian F Akers Spooner. He is the 2nd of 10 children and sibling to Joseph W, , the line I'm working on.
