Hi David, I didn't hear anything else from you. Did you get my attachment I sent you?Sometimes they don't go through.Also, I have found a few more things on the Akers, Arthurs, Pratts and will gladly share. I see that your thoughts on our ancestors are running in the same vein as mine.I have found Elizabeth Pratt (Rhoda's sister) marriage to William White in Franklin Co., Va.in 1806. William's father was Obediah White who married 1) Rhoda Arthur - sister of Frances and 2) Lucy Akers. I found an entry for Thomas Akers in Sept. 1815 in Giles Co. Tn. posting bail with Wm. Lee for Wm. White accused of trespassing by David McMicken.I also found Tomas Acre bought a cow and calf in Maury Co., Tn. in 1820 at an estate sale. Since I live in Knoxville I will see what I can find on Lucy Akers. I would really like to share info and see if we can't find that link we are missing.
