Query: AKERS family of Indiana

AKERS--Looking for information on George Akers (born 1791) and wife Nancy (born 1792) who had children:

--Martha Akers (born 1813)
--Milton Akers (born 1815 in Indiana)
--Sarah Akers (born 1817)
--Rachel Akers (born 1819)

Milton Akers married Rachel REDMAN (born 1820 in Ohio) on June 21, 1838 in Champaign County, Illinois. They were in the 1840 and 1850 censuses in Champaign County, Illinois.

There is a George Akers in the 1840 census in Champaign County, Illinois. He may be the same as the George Ackers who is in the 1850 census in the Navarro District of Tarrant County, Texas--he is born about 1791 in Kentucky, wife Nancy is born about 1793 in Kentucky. They have children:

--Simon Akers (born about 1821 in Indiana)
--Thomas Akers (born about 1826 in Indiana)
--John Akers (born about 1828 in Indiana)
--Byron Akers (born about 1843 in Illinois)

The only George Akers who's in Indiana for the 1830 census is in Silver Creek Township, Clark County, Indiana.
