Ann, Wife of William Akers II ~ Exhibit

We know the first name of William Akers II's wife from a 10 Apr 1706 deed (Deed Book 10, p. 216-7) in which "Anne Akers, wife of William Akers, relinquishes dower rights" on land being sold to James Boughan Jr.

This also proves that the marriage occurred before April 10, 1706 and they had at least one legitimate heir as William Akers, II was not able to claim his inherited land until he had one as stated in his father's will.
