Fallen Graver...

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. My hope is that family members of persons I have recorded will feel free to contact me with missing information, corrections, and to add their own photographs to the memorials.If I have listed one of your family members and you wish to take over the page let me know.
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.

Heidi, Thanks so much for the transfer. I am so excited to construct a biography for a personally-significant ancestor, whom I initially knew little about. I appreciate Terry's contribution very much.

James Aiken
Hello my name is James Edwin Aiken III,
I have started the research on the Aiken family for my own personal curiosity. My dads name is James (Jimmy) Edwin Aiken Jr. He died in March 2004. My grandads name is James (Boots) Edwin Aiken. He died in 1995. If I am correct James Willis Akin is my great grand father and Sallie Davis Akin is my great grand mother. I have heard we use to spell our name Akin, but changed to Aiken. Not sure why. I want to find out everything about my family and hope to connect with family members i have never met. Any information would be much appreciated. My email is

Thanks in advance,
James Aiken

RE: John Williams birthdate
Oh, leap years. Never thought of that. As you say close enough. I've only seen the convention of using years, months and days on gravestones recently. Wonder how they know if they don't know the birthdate? I'm sure the change in the calendar figures in some really old dates too. The fun of genealogy. Thanks

John Williams birthdate
Thank you so much for keeping this information for all of the relatives who can use it.
Can you please check with me on the accuracy of John Williams' birthdate . It is listed as Jan 29, 1807. Our family records have the date as Jan 4, 1804. The grave stone says he was 69 years, 4 months and 25 days old when he died.
I think that time agrees with Jan 4, 1804. I've been known to add incorrectly. What do you think?

RE: Sponsoring
Heidi: I would be interested in knowing Terry's Akin lineage heritage. My aunt Gertrude (Akin) White married my father's brother Gurn White. I grew up in Frewsburg, NY with Wayne Akin (my 3rd Cousin by our common Burch ancestor) who was my school classmate so my family has been close to the Akin's for a long time. Best regards, Ward.

Find A Grave 23145631 He is my 2nd great uncle. His parents, William H Bowen and Clara Bell McDonald, had four boys, one of them, Elmer Bowen, is my great grandfather - Elmer's son Leslie Elmer is my grandfather ... Was hoping to connect to Heidi as she sent me this email: "I was told that this is a duplicate of my husband's memorial #23145631 created in 2007" -- I deleted my original memorial, but would be interested in communicating to see if there is any info on Elmer she may want to share (photos, etc). Thanks ever so much.
