Lillie Forest Riley and Morris R. Akers

Lillie Forest Riley and Morris R. Akers

I found this photo in a North Little Rock, Arkansas flea market. The back says "Miss Lillie Forest Riley of Nettleton, Mississippi and myself about May 11th 1917. Morris R. Akers Mgr. Tupelo Dredging Co. Sardis, TN."

After research I believe this to be:
Morris R. Akers
born 9 Jan 1891 in Alabama
died 21 Apr 1969 in San Diego, California
married to Lillie Forest Riley
son of Lee Grant Akers and Laura Adelina Miller

Lillie Forest Riley
born 24 Jul 1894 in Lee County, Mississippi
died 09 Sep 1936 in Lee County, Mississippi
daughter of John Thomas Riley and Amelia L. Rankin
