About half the siblings used the spelling Akin without the s. In my research most of the close ancesters documents had the spelling Akins. Jesse's name also is spelled Jessie on most of his records, army ect.
His granparents wedding certificate is spelled; S. (Sion) G. (Granville) Akins & Sophia Catherine "Pike", his other granparents Robert George Wix & Harriett Alice Brown.
On our family tree at we have DNA from son Douglas for the Akins line, 2 closes match for ancestors are spelled Aiken, one in Georgia and one in California.
