Re: Acre Family KY 1800's
I think my Acre family also had its origins in Kentucky.
My grandmother, Annie Acre, married Oliver Frank Mowrer, in the Unionville, Putnam Co. Missouri area I believe. Not sure when they married, but she died about 1962 in Burlington, Skagit Co., Washington, so I think she was born in the late 1870s or early 1880s. I don't have the name of her father handy, but I think the Acres were from Kentucky.
My late aunt, Crystal Mowrer Parks, daughter of Annie Acre and O.F. Mowrer, told me Acre was originally d'Acre, something like that, so I suspect French origins, maybe originally from Nova Scotia or something, but I am a rookie in Acre research.
