Hello. Yes I do. His name was William--James I believe for a middle name--buried under Acree. He was called Bill, I believe.His wife was named Margaret Cleveland Cash Acree. (That is partly how my son got his name--Cash Acrey.) They are buried at a nice cemetery on the beginning rise of a hill with a small church just west of where they are buried. It is nearly to a small town just east of Dalton. I can see it all in my mind. It seems there were others there too that connected to them. Their son who was more a drifter than anything else is there but what his name is I do not recall.
Issac was the name of one of the cousins whose mother had been an Acree. He was called Ike. I mention that as I felt it was an old name in the family at the time.
The reason I replied with such vague info is that I felt sure they must connect. The Arkansas bunch spells it Acrey.
