AKERS CEMETERY


Transcribed by Barbara Jarvis
© 2002 - 2010

This cemetery is located southeast of Callisburg, on CR 107 between roads 132 and 136.  It fronts on the road with no fence or gate.  There are a number of old sandstone markers and the earliest burial found now is 1869 when George and Mary J. E. Akers buried twin infants here.**   Later, this cemetery became the final resting place of some of the families who lived in the small community of Westview.   Two Confederate veterans are also buried at Akers.   Surveyed with Gene Tarvin in 2003 .
