Trying to find info on my Scots-Irish ancestor: James Eakins/Akins
in The Tree House by
retagged by Ellen Smith
Does he have a profile number we can reference?  Birth date, death date, etc?
According to family information (the only info I have on him) is: James Eakins b: May 24, 1782 in Northern Ireland.  He was a Scots-Irish weaver. So I'm assuming he was born in NI but his parents were possibly from Scotland and came over in the immigration to Ulster.  He left from Londonderry Northern Ireland in 1811 and arrived port in New York.  I am interested in finding information on who his parents were.  I have been researching this for several years and can't seem to find ANY info.  Any help would be much appreciated.

Found mostly Akins, Aitken and Atkins with James as first name in Scotland.

Was your James born in Scotland or Ireland?

What year was he born, married and is there a death yr.?

Surnamedb.com has information on the Eakins surname which ranks at 13,322 in popularity out of close to 50,000 surnames.

Surnamedb.com does not have anything on the Akins surname, but Atkins ranks 331st. Since it's a free site, you can check it out easily. Info on Atkins is fairly extensive.

My James was born Feb. 1782 in Northern Ireland but according to family records he was a Scots-Irish weaver so.....his parents are very possibly Scotish. He married in 1811 and he died in 1863 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri USA
