According to family researcher and Akers descendant, Jeanne M. Howell, most all of those buried here are descendants of John C. Akers and Lucinda (Davis) Akers (Click here to view a family file from Jeanne). The Nancy B. Akers is John's mother, Nancy Rebecca "Beck" (Porter) Akers, wife of Robert N. Akers. Jeanne does not know where Robert N. Akers was buried. Thank you Jeanne for sharing this information!
