Re: Benjamin Ackley & Experience 1760 ct.
Hello Ackley Cousins and Researchers:
If anyone can provide me with documentation or clarity or point me to where I can find documentation; I would appreciate it immensely.Benjamin Ackley is my sixth great grandfather, the grandson of one of the founding fathers of Haddam Connecticut; any Benjamin Ackley and Experience information is very interesting to me.I thank you for the information, perhaps I will gain more clarity from something you have provided.I have been racking my brain trying to figure out if there are two people named Experience Crippen.
• I have in my information, Experience Crippen married to Benjamin Ackley (married 1730, or 1733 East Haddam), although I have not found any written proof of this union, except LDS.The fact that this is just being told to me without documentation makes me a little skeptical.Although, this is what is in my family history, none of the keepers of the family information are still living to ask where this came from.I do know there is someone named Experience, just not positive she is a Crippen.
• I have seen transcripts of Colchester Connecticut Settlement Records.And some other information of Experience Crippen married to John Lord (*John Lord and Experience Crippen m. 26 Dec 1724).
I have run across several errors that have been written down so I want proof of some sort, if at all possible.It is entirely possible that the birth dates that were recorded are not recorded accurately from the family bibles or where ever they came from.It is also possible that Experience was married twice, although I haven’t seen this anywhere and the marriages would somehow over-lap.My real source of confusion is the place of death.I have the Experience Crippen Lord dying in Vermont and the Experience Crippen Ackley dying in Connecticut with only set of parents for this Experience Crippen of Connecticut.
