Copy of a letter from A.J. Akin, Quaker Hill, July 25, 1891 Mr. N.W. Wells, Schuyler, Neb. My Dear Sir, Your letter of the 6th received. I have a record of the Akin family, and I shall be happy to assist you all I can. Have copied the part in which you are interested as far as we have it. Where the land is, occupied by your ancestors, I am unable to trace. As far as my branch of the family is concerned, the male part is almost extinct. My nephew has a son, a name sake of mine, under 10 years of age. He is all that will remain in a few years. If I live to the 14th of August, shall be eighty years old, and while I have lost the use of my limbs, have the charge of a large amount of business. Should you ever visit this part of the country, where I live, will be pleased to see you. My summer residence is still Quaker Hill but in the winter my home is at 4 West 56th St. New York. A year ago last winter we met a Miss Margaret Wells of Johnstown (NY) at Hot Springs, North Carolina - a relative of yours, I presume, as she told us her Great Grandfather was Edward Wells.
