akerley/ackley New York
Can anyone steer me straight?
Akerley's were loyalists to Atlantic Canada in 1783 and included Isaac Sr, Isaac Jr, Oliver, Obediah, James, Nathaniel and David (My ancestor born about 1766). They all hailed from Westchester New York.When they landed at their new settlement they were listed as Ackley's. (and James in one case was listed as Eccles). All were buried as Akerley's.
Trying a new tack and looking for Ackley's I note that the desecendants of Nicholas have a preponderance of James, Oliver , Obediah and Nathaniels. Could they be related? Any clues?
Thanks for your time
