started researching some more is very hard to find much info here's what I have as I think maybe it's the same James Akin. There was a son Sidney Akin born in Campbell Co., Georgia according to his Confederate Pension Application the only AKIN ON THE Campbell County census is James Akin also listed on 1840 census leading us to believe he is the father of Sidney Akin my gg grandfather. Listed on the record is James Akin age 57 and wife Mary Akin age 60 children Lorenzo, Lousa, Cintha, William, Sidney. A lot of times the census takers info was not accurate. Please let me know if any of names or dates match up like you I am having a lot of trouble finding much. Really need to trace down my gg grandmother's maiden nameshe would have been married to James what is your Mary Akin's maiden name?
