Karis, your g-grandfather William Norvell Akers was my g-grandfather's older brother. My g-grandfather was Hugh Henry Akers born 1846 in Amherst County, VA. William was born in Amherst, VA in 1844. Their younger brother was Johnny Jefferson Akers and he too was born in Amherst,VA but in 1848. Their parents John Henry and Martha F. Norvell, Akers were both born in VA. After these children the Akers family moved to Pike County, MO. Where other children were born.
There were teachers and preachers in this family. My Hugh Henry was a Methodist Preacher in Dougherty, Murray County, OK where he died in 1924 and is buried.
You do still have family in and around Pike County, MO. I know some but not all. I have a picture of your great-grandfather William Norvell, one of my Hugh Henry, one of his sister Dolly and husband Tal Woods, and a younger brother brother Charles Thomas. I also have a picture of Ed Akers, son of Your William.
I would like to stay in touch and exchange family history. and I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for reading my information.
