Katherine, Wife of William Akers I ~ Exhibit

We know the first name of William Akers I's wife from a 3 Feb 1679 document in which Katherine, wife of William Akers, gives power of attorney to Thomas Gaines in Essex Co., Virginia (Deed Book 6, pg. 99).

She was born before February 1657/58, probably about 1650. She died before February 1701/02. She is not listed in her husband's will, so she likely preceded him in death.
