Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1815
Virginia, USA
Death: Nov. 9, 1873
Montgomery County
Virginia, USA

Susan was the daughter of Jacob Akers (1772-1870) and Ruth Howard.
She married on August 26, 1837, Montgomery County, Virginia, to Thomas Winters Terry, son of Aaron Burr Terry and Elizabeth Wineteer/Winters.
They are listed in the 1850 census of Montgomery County, Virginia, with 10 children at home. He was a miller.
Susan is buried in "Mill Creek Cemetery", perhaps on Jacob Akers' farm, Pellam's Branch, Mill Creek, New River, Montgomery County, Virginia.
Concerning the children listed below, one relative believed that Nicotie and Scott were not natural children of Thomas and Susan, but were relatives taken in. Dora may also have not been their natural child.

Besides the children linked below they had:
Elizabeth Terry (ca.1843-unk), living in 1860.
John Hardin Terry (1849-1937).
Keturah Blanche "Katie" Terry (1855-1930).

Note on Katie's birth year: her gravestone says 1855 but she appears in the 1860 census as age 9.
