We have been searching for the parents of our David Crockett Akers. We noticed that there is a David Crockett Akers on some web sites (see immediatelybelow) but he was born to late to be our David.
s3-Joseph C. Akers (abt 1831-abt 1870) sp: Phena Elliott (abt 1833-abt 1877) Son was: 4-David Crockett Akers (10 Dec 1855-abt 1884) sp: Elizabeth Caudill (abt 1855-abt 1878)
Question: Does any Akers researcher have anything on David Crockett Akers born 26 May 1836 in (we think) Kentucky or Missouri and died 24 April 1907 Vinson, Harmon Co., Oklahoma, buried in Cave Creek Cemetery in Vinson, Harmon Co., Oklahoma?
Our David married (1) Permelia J. Sams on May 2, 1861 (from family Bible) but not sure where. Had 4 children: William W., Jennie C. Delilah, Cora, Ella "Lilly). He married (2) Ruth Emma Isabel Pennon 3 Jul 1894 in Bee Creek, Ellis Co., Texas. Ruth was born 19 Jan 1859 in Tennessee and died 31 April 1945in Greer Co., Oklahoma. They had two children, Joseph Daviid and Clara Velma. While David was in Ellis Co., Texas during the late 1800s, there was also a C. W. Akers but don't know if they are related
