I descend from Abner Acrey's daughter, Frances Elizabeth that m. Joseph Wesley Boatman, son of David Boatman.
I'm searching for the family history of the Acrey's. Any information or leads are appreciated. Am wondering if this Abner ties to the ones seen in GA...do you know?
I have found the following at the library from the Nacogdoches County TX Will Book B. 1865-1903
ACREY, ABNER pp. 99 W. 15 Jan 1869 P. 10 May 1869

I'm also posting a duplicate of this msg on the Acree forum as there are other Acrey postings there and some of the same names listed above are found there too! :o)
