Hi Helene, I have Orman Acklin, died in 1820's, Madison Co. Alabama leaving an estate, daughter Elizabeth Acklin born 11-25-1801. She married James Clifford of Chocowinity area of Beaufort Co. N.C. 1820. Assume Orman originally was from there but have seen Virginia mentioned.Cliffords settled in Mifflin Tn. around 1825. Some later moved to Texas around 1850. Probably same family you seek.
