Thomas Akers and Mary Smith are my great-grandparents. They had three sons: Earl, Harold B. Akers Sr. (my grandfather) and James. I believe Thomas may have had other children by a previous marriage. I understand that Mary was from Terre Haute, Indiana.
Harold Sr. was born January 2, 1898 in Defiance, Iowa and died February 22, 1999 in Longmont, Colorado. Prior to moving to Boulder in 1929, Harold lived in Council Bluffs and Manilla.
