I am also interested in the Ackerly/Ackley family of that area. I am
looking for Lemuel and Catherine Ackley whose daughter, Harriet Amelia
Ackley married Henry H. Mead, son of Leonard Wesley Mead of Roxbury. Don't
know if there is any connection...
Any information would be helpful.

Subject: [NYDELAWA-L] Ackerly of Arena
My nephew asked me to find out information on his great great
grandfather Daniel B. Ackerly who came from Arena.
Daniel was born 17 Aug 1817 and died Beaverkill, t/o Rockland, Sull Co 19
Jan 1900. 82y 5m 2d
Just recently I was a the town clerk's office and the only thing listed
regarding his death was that it was unattended and that he died of cerebral
apoplexy. No parents and no known obituary or will.
Daniel was married to Rebecca Jane Close d/o Elijah. Her death
certificate was more confused. Her son Aaron gave the info and a birthdate
of 4 or 9 March 1830, her age at death was listed as 82y 10 m 10d, BUT she
had was appears to be 2 death dates- one 25 Jan 1913, the other 30 Jan 1913.
As you can see these dates just don't work out.
Aaron also stated that the last time he had seen her alive was on
the 19th of Jan. Aaron, or maybe someone not paying attention, wrote her
parents were Elijah Close and Rebecca Jane Close, maybe that is correct, but
it was one of those things that "didn't feel right".
It seems that Daniel with the B. middle initial is descended from
Benjamin, but is he a grandson or son. Some think he is the son of John.
And, did Daniel have any brothers or sisters?
any help here greatly appreciated, evelyn
