Re: Ackles in PA
The Ulster-Scot (Scotch Irish) Eckles or Eckels which descends from Charles Eccles 1715-1781 of Chester County, Pa was often recorded as Ackles or other varying spellings. Being indifferent to the recorded spellings and an inability to read probably led to this. In the affadavits attached to his own will his daughter is recorded as Deborah Ackles. To avoid confusion this family has no relationship to the numerous Ackles in Nova Scotia and upper New York State. To add the confusion some were recorded at times as Echols and Eckols.
Thank you for the recording which I will be checking to provide clues to missing Eckles/Eckels information, the name I am researching.
