She was 12 in 1900, listed as Osa and living with her father and stepmother.

She was 40 and divorced in 1930 living in Wapsinonoc Twp, Muscatine, Iowa and said she had been 22 years old when she got married.

NOTES: She never had any children of her own but may have helped raise a nephew who I believe was probably Virgil DUNCAN who was still young when his mother and father died. Aunt Ollie lived in Iowa for a period of time, and moved back to Kansas City, Missouri in the early 50s to live with Fred Lee and Carrie Etta Duncan. She was cremated and buried by (actually on top of) her brother James Marshall DUNCAN in Memorial Park Cemetery in Kansas City, Missouri.

John Harvey AKERS

NOTES: History of Bedford, Somerset and Fulton Counties, Pennsylvania ---- Chicago: Waterman, Watkins & Co., 1884 ----- "John Harvey Akers learned the wagon makers trade and practiced it in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. In 1851 he moved to Emmaville, Pennsylvania where he built a store and grist mill. At that time it was a wilderness and he named it Emmaville, Pennsylvania. In 1855 Doyle, McNeal & Boblets of Franklin County, Pennsylvania erected a tannery in Emmaville. In August 1864 John Harvey Akers enlisted in Coompany F, 56th Regt., Pennsylvania Volunteers. He served there until discharged in May 1865. In 1866 the tannery at Emmaville was sold to J. B. Hoyt & Co., of New York. The tannery continued to operate in Emmaville until 1877 when operations were stopped due to a scarcity of bark for tanning. In 1866 John Harvey Akers purchased at Akersville the mill property and farm of 368 acres of John A. Akers Sr. This with his later acquisitions made him essentially the owner of Akersville. In 1884 he owned a gristmill, sawmill, planing mill and a farm of 1400 acres. The grist mill at Akersville was 3 stories high and 30 x 60 feet in 1884."
