Hi Doris, You are way ahead of me on this one.Could you e-mail me a summary of your Akers work so that can follow along?I haven't spent much time on the Akers until recently.I just finished plotting the old Lauderdale County, AL land transactions onto a section grid of the county.The results were really interesting.George White, Jacob Kennemore, and William White all owned adjoining property around 1820.William later sold a section of his property to Ashahel Akers.Rhoda Pratt Akers and children were deeded this property after his death.I dont understand all the conflicting names for Ashahel unless, and this is just a wild theory at this point, but what if Rhoda married a brother or cousin of Ashahel's after his death? I havent looked closely at dates to see if this theory might work. The land adjoining Rhoda belonged to her brother Jesse.Hyrem Foust and wife Jane White (David's daughter) purchased a portion of George's property, apparently after his death.
I looked at all this and remembered that a William White filed his Rev War pension application consecutively with George's and began to wonder if maybe William, George, and even Jacob Kennemore might have been brother-in-laws?I would like to see William's pension application and also search for one for Jacob.I also want to search the 1790 NC census to see if White and Kennemoreappear together. Mail me your thoughts on this and lets see what we can do. My address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks Kent
