John Edward Akin b. 12 Mar 1881 TX according to the CA Death Records is the son of John William Akin b. 1848 Marshall Ci, MS and Martha H. Stroud b. 1850 TN. They married in Tipton Co TN 23 Nov 1870. They are listed on the 1880 Tarrant Co TX census with two sons James S. b. 1873 TN and William A. b. 1877 TX. I believe that the James, William and the sister Winnie are all brothers and sister. I can not find them in the 1900 TX census. I have more info on the Akin family of Maury Co TN if you are interested.
