I have not come across the Akeron name as far as I can recall and I have not heard the name mentioned by any of my relatives either. My father said that his eldest brother (who is now in his 80s) said something to the effect that we were related to the Alfords in Johnston County. It is odd how our family line drops off after Keaser. I am hoping to be able to have my DNA done before the summer and would be interested in possibly attending the 2013 NC meeting. My father's cousin might be interested in it as well as she has been interested in the Alford Geneology for years. She has binders and binders full of pictures of Keasar's grandchildren and great-grandchildren and a few documents or announcements. She said there used to be a family bible on a stand in Keasar's grandson's (Mallie M. Alford) entry way but it disappeared some time before they moved him into one of his children's home for elder care. Please let me know if you find anything on Akeron and I will do the same for you. If there is a meeting in NC this coming year please let me know as well. I'd like to attend if possible. Thanks for the information.
