For some time I've had a little trouble believing the family history of John Akin. South Carolina lists Peter, John, Archibald, and Ezekiel Akin all serving in RW units with each other at various times. Col. Brandon is one of them, Vadry McBee is another. These occurances suggest a family relation. Then there is the will of Lewis Akin who lived in Union Co., SC, at the start of the war and died 1791 in Laurens Co., SC. His will lists sons John, Archibald, and Ezekiel. This Coincidence hounds me to no end. I've researched Peter Akin without success. But, the name Peter runs in the Akin family back in VA whom Lewis is a part of. I'm not saying others are wrong. But it is disturbing.
