I am also interested in Christopher (Kit) Acklen, Texas ranger; I think he is the son of Samuel Black Acklen and Elisabeth Hunt of Huntsville AL. His brother Joseph was US attorney for Alabama. His father Samuel was the son of Christopher Acklin and Christian Black of Abingdon, VA. Most of the male children of Christopher Acklin and Christian Black settled in Franklin Co TN, except for Samuel who ended up in Alabama. Samuel Acklen and Elizabeth Hunt had a son named Christopher Black Acklen among many others. Contact me directly and I will give you more info on the Acklins/Acklens I know.I am a descendant of Alexander Acklin, a brother of Samuel.
