I am looking for information on a marriage between Missouri Octavia Shipp b. 23 Mar 1851, Walker Co, GA; d. 29 Jul 1894, TX and William Collin Akin b. 18 Aug 1843, TX d. 31 May 1910, TX. This is all of the information I have on them and it comes from the Shipp family genealogy book, 1985.
It is very important to me to find out who William's parents were and how he fits into the family line, as this has been a huge surprise to me, and will show that I am actually related to my adopted father (being of Akin decent) with my Mother being of Shipp decent.
