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 mustering out in 1974, I went to work in the Automotive Aftermarket with a 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 from Burkesville, Cumberland Co., KY.

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 over 300 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.

I am transferring her to you. My connection to her is through her husband, as I am originally a Morgan.
However, he is a distant relative and you are welcome to connect the Akin family.
The Ross Cemetery is a challenge and while I was there I photographed all the stones I could get to on that day.

RE: Ellard Family
Awesome! I am about an hour and a half from Birmingham. I hope to get over there sometime and visit the library and do some research at the cemeteries.
