Little Jim Akers #52ancestors

The following is from a paper by Lucy Hudson Akers, a daughter-in-law of 
Brooks. She says that Brooks told her this as he would sit in his chair and 
she would be cleaning up the house.
She says that Jonathan was married to Rebecca Kunode who was raised in 
England. They were the parents of James who was one of their six children. 
James married Sarah Reed in 1840. They had eight children, six boys and two 
girls. George, Jonathan,Ed, Brooks,Psaulters and Willam The girls were 
Elizabeth and Nancy.
George and Jonathan fought in the civil war. George was killed at the battle 
of Bull Run. Jonathan was wounded, being shot through the mouth and about the 
face. (note: family lore has it that Jonathan had deserted and knew that the 
soldiers were sseeking him so he dressed in his mother's clothes and was 
sitting at the spinning wheel when they came. Apparently they didn't check 
very close)
Brooks' grandfather died during the first year of the war Becky died at the 
age of 95 during the second year from nose bleed.

James was the first school teacher in these parts and built the first school 
house in the neighborhood. It was built from logs and was just one room. He 
taught for fifty cents per month for each child often taking his pay in 
foodstuff. He also did public writing, such as deeds and such documents. 

In 1868 he helped build the log cabin for his son Jonathan which later became 
the home of his son Brooks.It was in this house that Sarah/Sally died in 
early Eightys. James lived alone for awhile, later marrying Nancy Leffew who 
was the spinister aunt of Brooks' wife Louise 
James had been used to being a free spirit and couldn't adapt himself to the 
peculiar ways of the spinister woman. They only lived together for a short 
time and then he lived among his children.
He was found dead one winterey day near his son Ed's house. (Note: some say 
he froze to death)
He was on his knees as if he were praying.

The letter stops here with the word "continued" but no one has seen any more 
writing. I don't know if she stopped there or if she wrote more and it was 
lost. I wish I could have received this letter before she passed away.
