Mahulda's maiden name was PEARL. She was from the Pearl-Chestnut families that came to Burnet Co. TX from Laurel Co. KY prior to 1870, settling on the eastern side of the Colorado River iN Burnet Co. There is a street named Pearl, severa streets there are named after some of that area's pre-Buchanan Dam settlers, in the village of Silver Creek enroute to the Canyon of the Eagles State Park even today.

SOME of the Pearls remained in that part of Texas, but others went on west to become the FIRST settlers around London, TX, Mason Co., with London selected as the name of their old hometown of London, KY, Laurel Co. Mahulda's family line is well researched, with Fredericka Burt Wyatt, who heads up some of the historical organizations for Kimble Co., being a descendant from the same Pearl line.

George W. Ake's FIRST WIFE was Mary Evelyn or Eveline PANKEY, who he married in Burnet Co. 1-3-1864. The couple had two sons, Joseph Grundy, born around 1867, and Thomas William, born 6-1-1870, died 1937 in Rockspring, TX. Mary Evelyn is BURIED in the Bluffton Cemetery, Llano Co. TX, being one of 400 graves moved out of harm's way prior to completion of Buchanan Dam over the Colorado River. She is buried near her mother and her brother, John B. Pankey, and family. George's marriage to Mahulda is also on file in Burnet Co.--1-7-1874.

P.S. I have researched families whose graves were moved beginning in 1931 on both Llano and Burnet sides of the Colorado for over 25 years.
