I have quite a bit of info on John Akers born at Sawley(not Sawby as on 1881 census)in 1799. He was the son of David Akers and married Elizabeth Hebdon, they had three children one of whom was John a Methodist Minister who emigrated to America, his daughter Sarah(born Montville? Ohio) returned to England to live with her Grandfather in Minskip. John Akers sen. lived to be 95, his son predeceased him according to his Will. I would be happy to send what information I have via email. My maiden name was Akers and my Gt Gt Grandfather was John Akers but not alas this one so I am still searching for his Ancestors! There are quite a few Akers in the Ripon area of North Yorkshire a fair few of them called John!
