John Curtis Akers, was born April 5, 1877, near Manchester, Ill. grew to manhood and spent practically all his life in the vicinity of his birth. He was the son of Stephen E. and Mariah Akers and was one of a family of four children, consisting of himself, a sister, Ruth, deceased, wife of Fred Spencer of Texas, Robert G. a brother, of Riverton, Nebraska, and Josephine, a sister, deceased wife of Oscar Boston of Manchester, Ill.
On February 3, 1904 her and Emma Jane Rea were united in marriage. He has always followed the noble calling of farming and was a successful workman of that vocation.
He was always interested in the welfare of his neighbors and friends, and his community and the public schools, and was repeatedly pressed into service as a member of the board of directors in the communities where he has lived.
He was a member of the M. E. Church of Roodhouse, Ill., and by his life's works proved his faith therein.
He was a member of Manchester Lodge No. 229 A. F. & A. M., Manchester, Ill., and by the plumb-line of justice ever walked uprightly before God and man, squaring his actions by the square of virtue, ever remembering he was traveling upon that level of time to the undiscovered country from whose bourne no traveler returns.
He loved his family, his church, his lodge, his neighbors and his friends. He possessed that beautiful gift so difficult of acquisition, of never letting the trivial faults or mistakes of his friends obscure their many good qualities. In conversation he never dwelt upon these adverse qualities, but spoke good and did good unto all.
