Now that I have found out some more information on this line of people it would be safe to say that I had a mother that didn't know what she was talking about. However it sort of goes like this if anyone is interested in this okay: William M.Ackles who was born in 1778 in PA. d. Aug. 26, 1844 Highland Co. Ohio Married: March 27, 1808 in Highland Co. OH Mary A Long who was born in KY on September 11, 1780 and died on October 17, 1849 in Highland Co. Ohio
they had the following children: 1, Sarah Ellen Ackles b. 1808 Highland Co. Ohio 2, James Eccles Ackles b. August 4, 1810 Ohio 3, Philip Henry Ackles b. 1812 Ohio 4, Elizabeth Ackles b. 1813 Ohio 5, William M. Ackles III b. 1819 Ohio 6, Maryann J. Ackles b. 1.9.1822 Ohio 7. Robert D. Ackles b. 1824 Ohio William M Ackles has a Will of 1844 which mentions his children but not his wife's name. Odd but true. He also mentions his youngest son, not quite 21 probably to be taken care of. I descend out of the second child of William and Mary Long/ Ackles: James Eccles Ackles who was born August 4, 1810 in Ohio married Elizabeth (Betsey) Rader who was born on September 15, 1810 in Bourbon Co. KY. James Ackles died on September 23, 1894 in Grundy Co. MO. Elizabeth, well we aren't sure about when she died but we are thinking about 1860 in MO. They had these children: 1, George Ackles born. 1832 2, Margaret A. Ackles b. 1834 3, Mary A. Ackles b. 1836 4, Louisa Ackles b. 1836 5, Sarah Ackles b. Nov. 21, 1839 6, James G. Ackles b. June 6, 1840 7, Manerva Ackles b. 1842 8, Elizabeth Ackles b. September 14, 1846 9, William Ackles b. 1848 10, Hersa Ackles b. 1849 Then James re-married we think and then he married Talitha Elizabeth Allega Street on Dec. 11, 1864 in Grundy Co. MO They had the following children: Lydia who was born on October 8, 1865 in Trenton, Grundy Co. MO Stephen David Ackles who was born on November 16, 1869 in Trenton, Grundy Co. MO. I descend out of Stephen David who married Isabel Rose Rhodes and they had my grandfather.
Happy hunting, sure has taken me a life time to find all this out. And we are not sure of some of it. Doesn't help with the census not being readable right?
