RE: John Akers (Memorial# 116839544)
Oh, my. How awful that someone would be so callous as to wipe out a family's resting place. What did they do with the headstones? Do the current owners know of its existence? So sad.

I descend through their oldest son - Henry Hudson (or Hudson Henry?) "Huts" Akers - born abt 1800 in Franklin County, (W)VA.

My line:
John Akers
Henry Hudson Akers
Sarah "Sally" Akers
Christopher Columbus Dodson
Lemma Edith Dodson
Garry L Wheeler
Chris(tine) Wheeler Drenan (me)

I guess that would make us 5th cousins? :)

John Akers (Memorial# 116839544)
Find A Grave Memorial# 116839544

John and Sarah Brown Akers are my 4th great grandparents. I was trying to look for this cemetery on a map based upon your description in the photos you took. Do I understand this correctly - that these graves are actually in someone's residential back yard?? Would love to know if you're related as well. Thanks.

I took some photos of a cemetery in Norcross, GA, but I don't know the name of it. Do you have a map or an address for Akers Cemetery in Norcross?

Hi Larry,

My name is Lana Thomas Davis. I am a descendant of James Thomas. I saw your post on the Find A Grave website and am interested in hearing more about the information that you have.

I am supposed to start working on becoming a member of DAR in January and I intend to use Gilshot or James to qualify me. If your information about Gilshot/Gilshot Jr is correct then I need to use James to quality.

I would love to exchange emails with you. Mine is lateda "at"
