Eureka!! I'm soooo excited. George B's line is collateral to mine, but I am from this family and have just been working with them a bit. Good timing on my part.
I am the great granddaughter of Henry T. Akers, son of George and Mary J. E.. (I'm guessing the "J" stands for Jane and the "E" stands for her maiden name -- presently unknown.)
Henry T. was this George B's Uncle. George B was the son of Lewis (or Louis) and Elva Akers.
Many of these guys moved out west to Plainview, Hale County. In fact, I believe that's where George's mother, Elva died. She is shown on the 1910 Census in Hale County, living with a daughter, Cora.
I will happily share what I have -- little of it from primary sources, most of it from painstaking census work.
I'm particularly interested in this George's grandfather -- Lewis & Henry's father George and his wife Mary J.E.
I'm also interested in George & Betty (or Bettie?) and their off-spring. At the time of the 1900 Census, they only had two children, Heywood and Charles.
P.S. There is some connection to the Akerses out of Grayson County as well as Indian Territory/Hughes County. I have two checks among my great-grandfather's relics that are signed by an I.T. Akers, on checks labeled "Akers & Wood Gen'l Merchandise." I believe this is Isaac T. Akers who lived for a time in Grayson County. I'm thinking he could possibly be another brother of Henry T. & Lewis -- or perhaps a cousin. In one case, the bank was in Whitesboro, Grayson Co TX. The other was in Calvin, Indian Territory OK.
