Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was so pleased when I found the "Find a Grave" site, which has given the opportunity to list members of the Akin Family and their brief bios with burial locations. I wish to recognize the hard work of Lois Akin Schultz, Daphne M. Brownell, Robert Lawrence Akin, Donna Wendt, and Karen Kelly for gathering, researching, photographing, and making available the majority of the information I used on the Akin memorials.

Terry passed away on 2 May 2011 but I (Heidi)will continue to maintain his site and any request. Just use the edit tab on the memorial to send messages at his email address on file for any changes you want.If I have listed one of your family members and you wish to take over the page let me know.

Baird and Fleet

Good evening would you be able to take pictures of my gg grandparents and some of their family Graves. I heard that about 5 or 6 are buried in same section. My ggg grandmother is Ophelia Baird and there is a picture of her grave. I'm not sure if she is buried next to any family members or not. My gg grandparents were Washington F. Fleet and Rosa Roubaud (Baird) Fleet died 1927 and a Mary Baird her sister and a Lizzy Baird a half sister possibly next to her? Also a Florence Lillian ( Fleet ) Brown?

RE: Loudon Park

Thank you so much for your reply, and for trusting me with a few of your husband's memorials! As I go through them I will send them to you. I'm not able to sort or search them specifically.

Here is what I have thus far:

Thank you again,

Sarah Allen
Can you assist me on a point in the Akin Genealogy?

You have indicated that David Akin was married to Sarah Allen. I have Sarah Allen b 9 Jan 1692 in Dartmouth, Bristol, Massachusetts, USA; and dying in 1779 in Hill, Dutchess, New York; I have her married Jeremiah Deuel b 1680 in Dartmouth, Bristol, Massachusetts, USA; and dying on 29 Nov 1753.

My Sarah had the same parents as yours, Ebenezer Allen and Abigail Hill. Jeremiah and Sarah were married on 24 May 1711 in Dartmouth, Bristol, Massachusetts, USA.

Massachusetts, Compiled Marriages, 1633-1850: Name: Sarah Allen; Gender: Female; Spouse: Jerimaih Devol; Marriage Date: 24 May 1711; City: Dartmouth; County: Bristol; Source: Family History Library, Salt Lake City, Utah, Film # 0883792 ( : accessed 1 Jan 2017)

Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988: Name: Sarah Allen; Event Type: Birth; Birth Date: 9 Jun 1692; Birth Place: Dartmouth, Massachusetts; Father Name: Ebenezer Allen ( : accessed 1 Jan 2017)

I do have a David Akin b 19 Sep 1689 in Dartmouth, Bristol, Massachusetts, USA; and dying on 7 Apr 1779 in Pawling Dutchess, New York, USA.

His parents were John Akin and Mary Briggs.

I am wondering if Sarah married a second time? But my problem is the timing of the dates, Jeremiah died in 1753 so it didn't fit the date timeline you have indicated with the children of Sarah and David.

I am interested in you opinion.

Sarah Akin
Looking thru your Akin line, you might be able to help me. I have one of those "brick walls" in a line of mine. She was born in New York, 18 July 1831. Died 27 September 1901 in Chicago, IL and was buried in Earlville, IA. She married Lorum Joel Seger 24 Oct 1850. A lot of her kids are buried in Earlville. I've been at her gravesite. I've looked thru a lot of the Akin headstones but nothing seems to come close and neither Family Search nor Ancestry has anything on her. I have not been able to find anything on her parents. The family histories don't match up either. Lorum is a direct line ancestor of mine. I've noticed that the Akins in the cemeteries really like the name Sarah, or so it seems. I'm kind of hoping she came from there somehow. Any ideas/info would be appreciated. Thanks,

Dr Charles Shelton #52044781
CHARLES SHELTON, b. Jul. 16, 1782, d. Aug. 29, 1832; m. May 19, 1813, Lucinda Cornwall; b. Jan. 3, 1796; d. Jan. 21, 1872; dau. (Dr.) Thomas Tryon and Lucinda (Foote) Cornwall.

1. Charles; b. June 18, 1814; m. Caroline M. Casilear.
2. Grace Abigail; b. Feb. 27, 1818; m. Edwin H. Buddington.
3. William R.; b. Dec. 8, 1820; m. Annie Louise Casilear, New York City.

~Andrew Warde and his descendants, 1597-1910; George Kemp Ward; A.T. De La Mare Printing and Publishing Company, 1910; pg. 174.

A native of Huntington, Ct., Charles Shelton was fitted for College by Rev. David Ely, D.D., of that town, along with his cousin, Nathan Sholton, Gideon Tomlinson, John B. Judson, Charles Judson, and Hezekiah Marks, the three last of whom did not graduate. His relatives state that he read theology for a time, which was probably done with some expectation and design of becoming a minister of the Gospel in the Episcopal Church. He did not, however, take orders, but turned his attention to medicine. He studied with Dr. William Shelton, an eminent practitioner and teacher of medicine in Huntington. He settled as a physician in Cheshire, and had a large practice. Beside attending to the duties of his profession, he was several years a selectman and justice of the peace in the town, repeatedly a Representative to the General Assembly of the State, and one year a State Senator. He was a member of the Episcopal Church. He died August 28th, 1832, aged fifty. His widow has since lived with her daughter.
Dr. Shelton married May 9th, 1813, Lucinda Cornwall, daughter of Dr. Thomas T. Cornwall, of Cheshire, and had three children, Charles, Grace A., and William Roderic.
Charles Shelton, the oldest son, in 1838 married Caroline Casilier, daughter of John Casilier, of New-York. They lived for a time in Cheshire, but now five in New-Haven, where he has been a wholesale grocer. They have no children.
Grace A Shelton was married to E. W. Budington, formerly of New-Haven, afterward of Rosendale, Ulster County, N. Y., and now resides in Kingston, N. Y. They have had nine childrenóthree sons and six daughtersóbut only six of the children are living, namely, Mary Lucinda, Edward Augustus, Inez Augusta, and three who are younger. Mr. Budington has been engaged successfully in manufacturing hydraulic cement.
William Roderic Shelton for some four years was a wholesale grocery dealer in Wilmington, N. C.; but the climate being unfavorable to health, he returned to the North, and for about three years was a paper manufacturer in the firm of Shelton and Mallory, in Westville, in the town of New-Haven. He has since been a partner with his brother, in New-Haven.
In October, 1846, he married Anna L. Casilier, a sister of his brother's wife. They have one child, Charles William Shelton, born March 28th, 1849.
For the last six years Charles and Wm, R. Shelton have been engaged, separately, as brokers.
