Thomas Alexander Akin(my father) was born in October 1889,in Winnepeg. He had 2 brothers, Charles and Frank. Three sisters, Lulabelle, Annabelle, and Tess. The family vacationed in Los Angeles during the winter and Thomas moved there in 1928 to join the Akin-Lambert(his brother in law) investment company.Both he and his brother Charlie died in the late forties prematurely. It is my understanding that his grandfather came from New Glasgow, Quebec and settled in Lochaber Township,P.Quebec.
