Hello Shelvie, Thanks for the information on your grandfather.I apologize for taking so long to reply.This is what I can come up with.It is a little confusing because there are two Peter's and two Henry's.Peter from Germany is my 3rd great grandfather. This is as far back as my research has taken me.I would love to know his parents names.
Peter from Germany had a son, Henry Harrison Akes b.Aug. 24, 1814, d. October 26, 1897.
He had a son, Henry Harrison Akes b. May 27, 1868, d. April 22, 1958I don't have his spouse information. Henry Jr. had a brother Peter, my gg-grandfather, who had a son James, my grandfather.
Henry Jr. had a son John William, b. 9/28/1895, your grandfather.So it looks like we are cousins.If you wouldn't mind, I would like any more information you might have about the Akes family.Thank you and good luck with your search.Eileen
