I am also descended from Thomas M. Akers &Margaret Mitchell. Our family bible lists only his name, b. 1770, d. 1815; her name, b. 1788, d. 1819. We have record of only onechild, William Akers b. 10/20/08, N.O.,La. Thomas Akers founded the town of Ponchatoula, La., and was its 1st mayor. His son William was the town's second mayor. William was also president of the Livingston Parish police jury during the Civil War. Any info on Thomas M. Akers (1770-1815) or his wife Martha would be appreciated.
