Ackley and Showers connection
I am researching the family of Francis Burton Ackley [1797-1884] and Elizabeth Showers [1799-1854]. They are both buried in the Tyler Street Cemetery in Van Buren Twp, MI, in Wayne County. Francis served in the War of 1812, according to his head stone.
My belief is that Elizabeth is the daughter of John Showers, who died 1845 in Paris, Brant, Ontario, Canada. I am seeking correspondence with anyone who can add to this discussion about who her parents were.
