Ms. Painter, I carry the name of Ackley. I have completed investigation and seem to have located a Charles Ackley that I feel is my father. He was a policeman in the Detriot area and some of the things that I have found out match what my mother told me at a young age. Could you share any info of the Ackley's in Michigan that you may have. I contacted a son of the Charles that I think is my father (he would be my half-brother) but he doesn't care to supply any aditional information. The information that I received was from Allen Ackley whose name appears on a number to the forums. Thank you in advance.
