Yes, yes!! I never knew that Fred Akey's first name was John but they are one in the same because Fred married Grace Comerford. I have virtually nothing re my father's background. He had one minor burst of energy to find out about his background but this was only sparked by his desire to prove he did not have French in his history. Once he determined this was true, he abandoned the whole process. Today he is 92, still sound of mind, but very fragile. He left home when he was 14 years of age and made his own way and a good productive life working for Ontario Hydro. He married Doris Windover from Selby, Ontario, in 1939. Together they had two children, me (Donna Akey Carter) and my brother Herbert Frederick Gary Akey. I am 69 and my brother is 62. I don't know where you live but I live in Cobourg, Ontario. I expect you have put a great deal of work into your family history but if you would be willing to share it, that would be great. Thanks. Donna Carter.
