Re: Ackers in Texas
Lizzie and Madelle Acker were my grandfather's sisters (John Arthur Speight)
They have lived in Commerce, Texas, Hunt Co. for as long as I can remember. Lizzie lived next door to my grandparents until her son, Roy shot himself some years ago. Now I think she lives in a nursing home in Commerce, but not real sure. I would be glad to asked my dad about them next time I see him. Do you have anything on John Wesley Ransom Speight or any other Speights who came to Hunt Co. from Arkansas via North and South Carolina?
