Re: ACHORDs/Eckerts? Madison Co Alabama
Pat: I don't yet have proof but I believe that Enoch is the son of Joseph Acord (spelled Achord in the 1850 Jackson Co. AL census, page 166b) and 1st wife Elizabeth Lane. Joseph and brother Jonas came to AL from TN late 1820's. In 1830 Jonas is in Madison Co. and Joseph is in Jackson Co. In 1840 brother David shows up in Madison Co. and in 1849 sister Catherine shows up in De Kalb/Jackson Co. These are children of Cornelius Acord and Barbara Eaker who moved from Lincoln Co. NC to Roane Co. TN in 1806. The Acord family is documented on my web site http://www.larkcom.com/ancestryhttp://www.larkcom.com/ancestry. Let me know if you make a connection.
