linda, i have done some research on my ancestors on the AKER side and i think what may be of assist to you all is there are two Philip Aker. One of the names is spelled Phillip and the other is Philip. One was the father and the other his son. This had us baffles for 3 years. I did find in Wythe Co. "wills and deeds" the elder Philip/Phillip's last will and testiment. in it you will find the names of his children (male & female). The elder Philip/Phillip's will is very interesting asaccording to our family records was very prosperous. if i can be of any further help or need more info on the PA descent and migration to Va. drop me a line.
