I am descendant of subject. Family bible lists only above info, plus his wife: Martha Mitchell. He was living in N.O., La. when his son (William Akers 1808-1889) was born. Then moved to and founded town of Ponchatoula, La., and served as 1st mayor. He also was president of Livingston Parish Police Jury during Civil War. Any info on his birth and ancestory would be appreciated.
