Hi Connie, My line traces back to Orman Acklin through his daughter Elizabeth Acklin who married James Clifford in 1820 in Beaufort Co., N.C. It probably was really spelled Ormond. Elizabeth died in 1830 in Mifflin, Tn. 2 weeks after giving birth to son Eli Orman Clifford. I assume that the Acklins were from the same area, Chocowinity, of Beaufort Co. but have also seen Virginia mentioned as Elizabeth's birthplace. She was born 11-25-1801. I really would like to know more about the Acklin ancestors & her siblings.
