This is getting interesting, for there is a Monroe Akinliving next to James D. Akin in Decatur Co TN in 1870 and James is the son of Lott Akin. Have not determined how Monroe fits into all of this but he must be close family to live next door. Somewhere in the back of my mind I believe Monroe Akin moved to Henderson Co by 1890. Don't quote me on that one, my memory is not always correct.My greatgrandmother Julia H. Terry's biological father appears to be an Akin, son of Lott, name still unknown.Terry family history states she was part "Indian" andraised by an "Indian" and he is James D. AKIN. In the 1880- Tn census it states she is his niece. One of Lott's daughters is named Synthia.
