Akers was a daughter of Edward Dallum AKERS (30 Nov 1853-Feb1921) and Mary Elizabeth TRUAX (3 Aug 1859-13 Apr 1943) who were married 21 Sep 1880.

Mr. Slagle wrote his lettersto Bessie V. Akers in August 1941 from Hanover, PA.Any interested researchers may contact the submitter at msc@juno.com forfurther information on the Akers family of Brush Creek Township, FultonCounty, Pennsylvania.

    LETTER #2 Hanover, Pa. Aug. 17, 1941 Dear Miss Akers,It is a lovely sunday morning, somewhat windy after a day of rain weneeded very much, as we had no rain since the 2nd week of July. We were fortunate here as I see in the Pittsburg paper that mostof the central and western part of the Old Keystone State had a regulardeluge coupled with a devastating windstorm. I don't remember ever hearing where John Wesley Akers lived whilein the old valley. Grandma Akers often spoke of what good times theyused to have, right often. She and Grandpa were married at a house thatstood at the extreme south west corner of the old place near the line ofthe old West Asa Akers place, we used to call that field the backorchard, as it had a few scraggly old apple trees in it. I am wonderingnow if that was John Wesley Akers' home. My mother died of that dread disease tuberculosis. The chair maker shop spoke of in the history of Akersville was asurprise to me, as I had never heard it spoken of before. Grandpa and Uncle Benson and Milton Akers ran the sawmill in winter and spring when water was plenty up to 1864. My father, (just married) then took over the saw mill till thespring of 1872, when he returned to his native Adams County. My motherhaving died in Aug., 1871. From that time on to Grandpa Akers death, BenHanks ran the Sawmill and farm. The cardingmill was only run during warm weather, as the mill hadto be above 70 degrees of heat to get the proper results. So that leftplenty of time during the fall and winter for the sawmill. Grandpa waslike your grandfather J.H. Akers, a very versatile man. He had a turning lathe, a power operated cider mill, and a saw tomake plastering lath, out of the slabs from the saw mill, all in all in abasement under the cardingmill. He repaired furniture, made tables,repaired wagons. Uncle Milton Akers was good with tools also, as long as he was athome. No one outside the family ever ran anything on the Israel Akersplace till Ben Hanks took over. When Grandpa was too old and decrepit tohandle the business. The saw mill was the old up and down mill so prominent all aroundthat valley at the time. I remember well the curiosity and even unbelief when yourgrandfather J.H. Akers built the first circular saw mill the most of ushad ever seen on the east side of the old grist mill. Many thought like the backwoodsman, when he saw his first hippopotamus, "There ain't no sich animile." When we saw it go through alog nearly as fast as we could walk, it was just too much for the imagination. 5 logs was a good days work for the old up and down. Thecircular saw handled that many in an hour. Do you know there was an oldup and down saw mill on Brush Creek about 100 yds. upcreek from thebridge on the McElwain road that runs behind the church and school house? They had an immense dam clear across the little valley that dammed thewater nearly up to the road along the hill. Elijah Hanks ran it and thelower Sproat farm as we knew it then. Joe Foor ran the next farm, andWrit Sproat the one next to the mountains. The farm buildings of these three farms were all that were onthat road when I left Akersville, you can imagine my surprise in Sept.1937 my brother and I made an auto trip to the old home and drove downthat road from the Lincoln highway. The new houses had me all mixed up.I wish I were able to give you accurate answers to all your questions, asOld Akersville has a warm place in my heart. I have gradually becomealmost deaf, so reading and recalling old times is my chief occupation.Otherwise I am in good shape for 76. Keep a good big lawn trimmed andmowed, have a few tools and work bench in my cousin's garage where I make flower stands and other things as the spirit moves me. Your Uncle James, and Elliot and Frank Akers, West Asa Akers,were school mates and chums of mine. We used to have great timeshunting, swimming, and shooting mark with the old long muzzle loadingrifles in vogue at that time. Oh the days gone by; Oh the days gone by; The music of the laughing lip, the luster of the eye, The children's faith in fairies and Alladin's magic ring, The simple soul reposing glad belief in everything. When life was like a story, holding neither sob nor sigh In the golden olden glory of the days gone by. James Whitcolm Riley Yours sincerely, Emory A. Slagle.

http://www.stolly.com/recreation.html - "The Recreation Room": Even a "House of Insurance" must have a Recreation (and trophy) Room.We use ours to pay honor to those High School Athletes who have won the "Stolly Hustle Award" while playing a basketball game televised by station WTLW in Lima.

The philosophy of The Stolly Group has always been to do whatever it takes, go that extra step, take the time and make that special effort needed to assure good customer relations and service. Our "Hustle Award" is a reflection of that commitment. The best way to communicate that throughout the community is through our youth with High School Sports. The "Hustle Award" is designed to pay tribute to the athlete who has shown special character, sportsmanship, ability, and leadership throughout a particular game which goes over and beyond the average player. Brock Foor is listed as a 1/16/98 winner; school, Continental. Stolly Insurance Group.
