He was born on 23 October 1827, in Pennsylvania, to [unknown] and Mary Akers (7, 10, 12; 4 (37 in 1865), 8 [32 in 1860], 9 [41 in 1870], 10 [72 in 1900], 11 [82 in 1910]). He was born in Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania (7, 8, 9, 10, 11).

In 1852, he married Mary A Rumberger (7, 10, 11). They had at least seven children (7):

After the war

He moved to Kansas in 1869 (7). He then purchased a farm in Miami Township, Miami County (7). He later purchased more property, totally at least 935 acres in Miami Township (7).

In 1870, he was living in Miami Township, Miami County, Kansas (9). He was living with his wife Mary A, and (probably) their children Sarah, George, Harry, Mary, Curtin, and Eva (9). He was a farmer, and owned $2,000 in real estate, and $1,100 in personal property (9).

He attended an October 1878 reunion of soldiers (5).

He was Justice of the Peace for four years, and County Commission of Miami County 1877-1880 (11).

On 9 September 1890, he successfully applied from Kansas for a pension (2, 6).

In 1900, he was living in Miami County, Kansas (10). He was living with his wife Mary and daughter Nina (10). He was a carpenter (10).

He again applied for a pension on 18 [illegible month] 1907 [?] (6).

In 1910, he was living at 1214 West 20th Street, Kansas City, Jackson County, Missouri (11). He was living with his wife Mary A (11). He had no occupation (11).

He died on 1 January 1916, at Kansas City, Jackson County, Missouri (6, 12). He was a carpenter, and a retired farmer (12). He died of cerebral hemorrhage (duration 32 days), with starvation (duration 10 days) as a secondary cause (12). He was buried in Elmwood Cemetery, on 7 January 1916 (12). The undertaker was HW Gates (12).
