I've traced my ancesetry back to Scoby S Ackley (b. 14 Feb 1798 - d. 1 Dec 1847) married to Margaret Smith (b. 15 Sep 1805 - d 20 Jun 1885). My great-grandfather (ROSS ACKLEY) talked about how his "Great-Great-Grandfather came across the big waters" so I'm assuming he meant the ocean. However, I can't find where they came from. If anyone can help, that would be fastastically super!!
