Hello. Try around Athens Georgia. I am not from the area but I know some Acree/Acrey family was in Banks County at one time.They left there and went to Dalton prior to 1900. My children's great grandfather was named John Acrey who came on to Arkansas soon after 1900-probably around 1902- with his wife Mattie Ketchum Acrey and two young daughters. John's parents are buried out from Dalton at a smaller area that I no longer recall the name of but under the name Acree. I am almost sure there was a Franklin in there somewhere. John Acrey lived out his life around Searcy Arkansas dying there around/before 1950.
