I don't have any info on Jap Akin's family.I do have a question.I have heard of Ella Dee being known as "Blackhawk".Do you know the origin?Do you think it relate to her guardianship?
I am descended from Susan Alwilda Stark, the sister of Thomas Calvin Stark, Sada's father.I have a short piece about Sada's family and will send it to you if you wish. It's not very enlightening, but it did raise the question about the nickname.I'm not sure where it came from; an aunt sent it to me.
What I have is mostly up on my web site:
Some is verified - some not.I will gladly share what few sources I have, if you ask about particular facts or persons.
