I am researching the ancestry of our family, Akin, Ellis, Carr and Hopgood. The Carr and Hopgood lines are fairly well documented, but I have very little information on the Akin and Ellis branches.
Our family consists of:
Michael Alan Akin (1946 - ), son of Floyd Vaughn Akin (1914-1951)and Phyliss Lauvell Ellis (1917-1962)of Harrison County, TX. Floyd was the son of Joseph Benjamin Akin (1877-unk) and Lucy Elizabeth Stroud (unk), and Phyliss was the daughter of Harvey Woodville Ellis (unk) and Jeanette Blanton (unk). These family members were from Harrison County, TX.
Jayne Celeste Carr Akin (1949 - ), daughter of John Thomas Carr (1923-1991)and Norma Jean Hopgood (1926-1998) of Charleston, Mississippi County, Missouri. John Thomas was the son of Thomas Wellington Carr (1885-1965, Prairie du Roche, IL) and Agnes Catherine Kettel (1891-1967, Charleston, MO). Norma Jean was the daughter of Alfred Samuel Hopgood (1898-1955, Morganfield KY), and Ruby Pearl Moriarty (1900-1993).
