Searching for information concerning Martha Sarah Akin who married Nathaniel Estes in Granville NC abt 1845. One known child, Martha Etta Estes. It appears that the Akin family was inter-related by marriaage to the Samuel Holmes family of Granville County. The Samuel Holmes family along with Akins and the Estes family moved from Granville County NC abt. 1855 and settled in Cherokee and Calhoun Counties in Alabama. Martha Etta Estes married Robert, son of Samuel Holmes in Nov. 1863 in Alabama and moved to Hood County Texas in 1903. It is possible that Lucy Holmes, daughter of Samuel, married an Akin and settled in Van Zant county Texas. There was an Akin man in Collin County Texas who stated that he and Wiley Holmes were cousins (Wiley was a grandson of Samuel). I would very much like to make contact with any Akin/Aiken families in Collin County or with anyone else who may have information on the Akin/Holmes connection.
