It turns out that my sister was invited to the reunion near her home in Clovis, CA, but didn't attend because we didn't know were were Akers desc - the inviters were just friends. Do you know how Henry Akers b. July 1801, and his wife Delila Miller m. Aug 1821, KY (written about in the book about early central CA settlements) are related to Sarah Akers (1625-1687) who married William Mulford, one of the first settlers of East Hampton, Long Island, NY? Their son Thomas married Mary Gardiner Conkling, grandaughter of Lion Gardiner. I've just found thru the Genforum Mulford page that William, Sarah, Thomas, and Mary are our ancestors, and we'd like to know how we are related to the Akers line in CA. Please e-mail me directly.
