Mr. F.M. Jordan
Having noticed that you attend to see matters connected with deceased soldiers
&c I at once appeal to you to aid in the case of my son Amos A. Akers, who
enlisted in the militia states service on the 2d day of August 1862, Camp Piqua.
I lost sight of him then for a long time being absent all the time traveling
when at Anderson Georgia I heard from him he was still on the move, the last
letter I received from him he was taken prisoner at the Chickamaqua on the 19th
Sept. 1863 and was sent to Richmond. On the 12th of December they were sent to
Danville Va. and on the 13 of April they were sent to Anderson Georgia which
is the last account of him I have.
I have written to his Captain Wm. H. Snider Co. F, 94 Regt O.V.I. he answers
that since the Battle of the 1st day at Chickamaqua he has not him seen either
killed or taken prisoner at the Libby Prison at Richmond. I wish you would write
to me and let me know all about it or at least if any thing can be done. I [*unclear*]
I have given you all particulars in regard to this matter. If there is any thing
more desired I can inform you after I hear. If there is any more proof needed
&c I remain truly yours & in Haste
Amariah Akers for C. Baird P.M.
