Alfred W. ACKLEY
You offered to do a look-up in an ACKLEY book that you possess. I would really appreciate your looking for my Alfred W. ACKLEY, born abt. 1791/92. He would be my 3G.grandfather.My mother and my grandfather's cousin (Bessie Ackley, Town Historian for Norway, Herkimer County, NY) have searched for years (until their deaths) to find a clue about a family connection/relatives for him. (Without finding anyone) He, my Alfred W. Ackley and his descendants, are listed on the ACKLEY website as an "Ackley line that is not connected to the Nicholas Ackley line from Connecticut". In other words, there is no known connection.
I can send you a sheet of the information that we do have about Alfred W. Ackley, if it would help in your "look-up". We have no record/proof of his having any relatives. Where did he come from? Who were his parents? When did he come to this country, if he wasn't born here? In 1817, Alfred W. Ackley married Perthena Tillinghast (dau. of Henry Tillinghast) in Herkimer County, NY. Alfred was a "Rifleman", in the War of 1812.
If you have any suggestions on where else I could research, please let me know. Thanks for any help you can offer.
