Bio and Links
Bio Photo While descended from three railroad men, I served 4 years in the Navy during the Vietnam War, after graduating with a B.S. in Industrial Technology from Miss. State University. Was stationed with NATO, just outside Oslo, Norway, in Kolsas, Norway working at a communications complex. After being discharged in 1974, I went to work in the Automotive Aftermarket with a major automotive parts manufacturer as a Sales & Marketing Representative for almost 20 years, then with a local Automotive Aftermarket Distributor for 15 years, then retired.

My Aunt Juanita Reed in Oklahoma was an inspiration to me when she researched the Reed side of my family, who resided in Warrick Co., IN and Barry Co., Missouri, where most of my father's descendants also ended up.

I began assemblying information on my families after I retired, then joined, and proceeded with research into my Akin, Reed, Greer, and Stab immediate and extended families.

My Stab side of the family immigrated in 1892 to Wheeling, WV from Hottweiler, Germany / Hottviller, France, where their descendants lived for for over 250 years. I have this part of my family fully documented on

If you are on, I can be found with the Robert Carl Akin Family Tree.

I welcome contacts and am open with any information, photo's, or documents I may have, regarding my research.

RE: Buelah (Akin) Davis & Clifford S. Davis
I understand about it making it easier to track and connect, there are so many that will not transfer unless you are in the findagrave guidlines and so many even if you are will not transfer. so many are just out for the numbers and I am out for each person to have as much of their history recorded as we can for others that come looking for them.
Take care of the Davis's and happy hunting,

RE: William and Martha Akin
I grew up around some Akin. One that I can remember really well was the woman every one called Aunt Susie. Most of her family was already gone. I grew up in Culleoka, Texas. Just a little hole in the wall back then, but has grown pretty much over the last few years.
I think she is buried in the Princeton, Collin County, Texas cemetery.
Thanks again

Richard Leslie Akin
I hate to keep bothering you but I noted in the bio of both Leslie and Fern the father's birth date is noted to be 17 Oct. "1968".

I agree Fern does not sound like a baby name but I have seen some really strange names out there.

RE: Fern & Richard Akin
Your welcome. I went back this evening after work to try to get a better picture since we have SUN today. We missed the snow the last two forecast and have gone from 6 degrees to 60!! I posted two different pictures but it is still hard to make out the engravings. I wish they grass was green and they might have stood out more. If you need to find any more relatives I hope I am still able to hunt.

RE: Fern and Richard Akin
I will just check this very old book at the Cemetery office. Somewhere along the lines the cemetery and the city hall don't match on a lot of records and once they found out why they obviously couldn't retrieve them. I found the Akins more on the line between section FV 13 and FV 14, so they my just be up the hill a ways further than I walked. I will continue to look but my best bet is getting my hands on the old cemetery book. If their graves turn out to be in the plot with the other Akins, I will post it to their memorial page for sure.

I searched the stated plot today for these two children but did not find them in the location given. I did find Fannie Cooweesta, Mary E., James Henry and Ulrick Reed Akin which I posted to their memorial page. I also took a picture of the plot which they were in and there may be others buried there but there were no other stones. I will keep it and see if you would like it posted or forwarded to you. I will look some more when I can get to the cemetery office to look at their older books. It was too cold and damp today to be out too long and we are expecting snow tonight and tomorrow so it may be a few more days.

RE: Trimble / Greer Family
I walked 3/4 off the cemetery yesterday and will get out another day when it is bearable to walk around. I do not have a map and do not know where to get one for the cemetery.

RE: Stab Family
As far as I know, Frank and Lena Stab Latz did not have any natural born children. I've also not found any infant deaths for them.

Frank was the older brother of my great-grandfather, August William Jacob Latz.

I have their Latz line traced down, their parents were Jacob Latz and Maria Greyhofski, who had 8 children, total. but I haven't traced where Jacob came from in Germany. His obit lists his father as Nicholas Ferdinand Latz and his birth as Oct 17, 1864, death was Sept 2, 1947.
