There are many Ackley's in the Hayward, WI area & I believe that quite a few of them are Native American and are of the Ojibwa (Chippewa) Nation. I have been told that I have some Native American blood, but have not been able to prove it. My aunt was a Tallman & was full blood Ojibwa from extreme northern Minnesota, on the U.S./Canada border. She married my uncle, Wilmer Ackley. Hope this helps!
