Re: Roy J. Acklin -- Waynesburg, PA
I have been researching the Acklins of southwestern PA fairly extensively and do have a record of your Roy J. Acklin, son of John Leslie Acklin and Edith Richard.My information suggests that Edith died about 1910 and John married second Margaret Mary Melvin.I don't have any more information on Edith, but have a friend who is researching a Richard family that was in Westmoreland County - there might be a connection.
John Leslie Acklin was the son of Samuel Acklin and Emma J. Nyswaner (I also have a friend researching Niceswongers-not the branch that ended up in southwestern PA, but, again, there might be a connection).
Samuel was the son of James Acklin and Jane Crayne.I haven't proven any father for James, but have some ideas of who he might be.
If you'd like further information, I can send you some more.Contact me directly.
