Let me take this opportunity to clear up a lot of misinformation about my Garland Akin / Robert Mann family tree from Russell County, Ky. c.1765
Garland Akin b.c.1765 (A Garland Akin is mentioned in 1780 "Will of John Rowland" Va. Guardians are appointed for him at that time so he must be a juvenile. It is unknown IF this is the same Garland Akin of Russell Co,Ky. It could be?)
Garland Akin (w) Nancy Ratton 15 Sep 1800, Lancaster, Garrard Co.,Ky. Garrard Co Ky Court Records.
1810 Census "Gerland Aikins" (mispelled) shows up in Cumberland Co., Ky. 1820 Census "Garland Aikins" (mispelled) still in Cumberland Co,Ky. 1830 (part of the Cumberland Co census was lost, I believe in a flood) Garland doesn't show up , or he may have moved in with a son as he wouold be c.65.
The census doesn't list children's names but it is known in the Mann family that he had a daughter Sarah Sallie Akin c.1807 in Ky , (w) John Mann c. 1807, Ky. on 09 Mar 1829 Russell Co, Ky. He had at least two sons Garland,Jr. and through deduction/related family records Shannon Akin.
Sarah Sallie Akin & John Mann's children: Shannon Akin Mann 1830 John Mann,Jr. 1832 Elizabeth Mann 1834 Garland Akin Mann 1838 Lavinia Mann 1842 Sarah Mann 1844 Mary Minty Mann 1850
Sarah Akin Mann d.16 Aug 1853 in Russell Co,Ky. John Mann #2 (w) Milly J. Haire. b.Jun 1850 Ky.on 31 May 1870 Russell Co,Ky. John d.before 1900 and is buried at the Haire Cem.,Russell Co,Ky.
*1840 Census Garland Akin ,Jr. and unknown child show up in East Barren, Barren Co, Ky.
Shannon Akin moves to Mo. becomes a Rev., weds,and is in many records there.
The listed facts are sourced by historical documents and personal family records and interviews. There was a Sarah Akin from Green Co. born to James Akin at near the same time. She, however, is was NOT John Mann of Russell Co's wife. Garland was our Sarah Akin Mann's father.
