1866 - 1925

Obituary:

PIONEER CITIZEN DIES

The death of Rev. L. Akers, which occured at his home in East Duncan
last night, came as a distinct shock to Duncan people. A pioneer of
this section, and a man who had devoted many years of his life to
preaching the gospel, prominent in business circles and for two years
representative of Stephens county in the state legislature, Mr. Akers
left deep footprints on the sands of time. He represented the Duncan
Banner several years, traveling over the county and making friends for
the paper, and in this work showed the same devotion to duty that
characterized all his work in his various lines of endeavor. His loss,
therefore, is keenly felt.

L. Akers was born in Indiana, July 23, 1866, and was in his 59th year at
the time of his death. He is survived by his wife and several children.


Funeral services were held at the Baptist church this afternoon at 3:00
and interment was in Duncan cemetery.
