I am looking for additional information on Charles and Kiziah and their parents and siblings as well as children and their siblings.I’m sure that many of the acklin/acklen/aclin/etc branches mentioned on this page are related, but I can’t find the tie to my tree.For example, I’m sure that the Christopher Acklin/Christian Black line is somehow connected to my Ann Acklin/Spottswood Black line, but not sure how.
I’d also appreciate any help in tracing the Harris line back from Lillian Ethel and Robert Clyde; I have very little on the Harris’s and Nicholsons.
