Nina Ackerly m. John Wesley MacPherson; both were b. ca. 1860.I have found a John Wesley MacPherson m. to Phoebe Ackerly in Nova Scotia and am wondering if they are my Nina's parents.The only child of theirs noted was Mary Adelia, b. 12 Aug 1852, the right time-span to be our Nina's sister.
This family is also connected to Isaac Ackerly, the Loyalist who settled in Nova Scotia during the Revolutionary War.A history I uncovered says that Isaac was from Westchester and his mother was Phoebe Howard from VA.It also says Isaac married Esther Doherty, and their daughter, Phoebe, m.John Wesley MacPherson.
I'd love to have ANY enlightening information about this bunch of interesting folks.
