Barbara, etal. I have William Akin's 1816 will, York Co. SC will book d, p. P-114. He mentions son Alexander, step daughter Nancy Wisher and granddaughter Elener Leech. Executors were George Davis and Alexander Akin and witnesses: Rt. Davison, George Davis, and William Ervin. You say his brother, Thomas got grant in 1774 on Turkey Creek in Chester Co. near the York Co. line. John Leech, who lived on Turkey Creek in York Co. near Chester Co. line, had a wife named Eleanor.They are my ggg grandparents. Does anybody have any data on William?He presumably came from Cecil Co. MD, as did David Leech, father of John Leech who married Eleanor.
