John Akin, David's son, apparently had 2 sons, James 1706 by Mary Briggs and Benjamin 1715, by Hannah Sherman, both of whom lived in Dartmouth, MA and were members of the Committee of 21..
I have been trying, without success, to learn more about this Committee of 21. I assume it may have a connection to colonists' grievances prior and leading to the Revolution.
Please enlighten me or give me a source!
