The full name of James Charles Akin was James Charles Finney Augustus Akin aka J.C.F.A. Akin on some census was the 4th son of 5 sons born or raised by Judith Sarah Jane Akin b.17 Aug 1832 in the Burkesville area of Cumberland Co., KY & who died between 1881 & 1887 in Burkesville, Cumberland Co., KY. The father is unknown.
Judith Akin was quite imaginative with the names of the sons she raised. All of her son's seemed to use parts of their names at times depending on the circumstances.
James most likely left the Cumberland County area of Kentucky for Texas around 1887, as did some of his other brothers. I am not sure they traveled to Texas together, but it is quite likely. Their mother died, before they left, from a measles epidemic.
James married Martha Rosella Turner aka Rose on 15 Dec 1892 in Bell Co., TX. Martha was b.24 Mar 1875 in Muscogee Co., GA & d.1 Oct 1960 in Fort Worth, Tarrant Co., TX.
Together they had 6 children that I am aware of. They were:
1. Willie Paul Akin b.27 Jul 1900 in Texas & d.24 Aug 1970 in Harlingen, Cameron Co., TX.
Married: Effie Mattie Tolliver abt 1928 in TX.
2. James Charles Akin b.abt 1903 in Texas & d.unknown.
Married: Lola Zenovia Carpenter abt 1927 in TX.
3. Jesse Norman Akin b.12 Jul 1904 in Texas & d.28 Sep 1974 in Glen Rose, Somervell Co., TX.
Married: Gwen Johnson abt 1943 in Parker Co., TX.
4. Maudie R. Akin b.abt 1907 in Texas & d.unknown.
5. Homer O. Akin b.9 Jun 1910 in Texas & d.30 Dec 1979 in Big Lake, Reagan Co., TX.
