My husband had a very distant cousin by the name of Raliegh or Rollie Akins, who was born in the mid 1800's. I'm sure that this is not the one you are looking for, but there might be some connection, as it is an unusual name. This Raliegh was a son or Thomas Robert Akins and his wife Elizabeth Brooks, I believe. They lived in Polk Co., Georgia in the mid to late 1800's, near Cedartown, Ga. Thomas R. Akins was a brother to my husband's great, great grandfather, and the line goes back several more generations to the 1700's. If you think there might be some connection, let me know.
