I am searching for a family Bible showing the descendants of Deborah (Pettegrew) Ackley 1782-1843 who lived in Machiasport, Washington, Maine and married Amos A. Ackley. Did she give birth to a daughter born 1815 named Temperance, or was Temperance adopted or "taken in"?
.....I have found published SOURCES for Temperance: US Census's (1850, 1860, 1870), U.S. Federal Census Mortality Schedule, & her marriage registration. I have searched for wills, etc. without any success. But I need to have a family Bible or PUBLISHED SOURCE that mentions her parents with her birth information. A family tree posted on a website such as Ancestry is, in many instances, copied from someone else. Someone's web-page with a family tree and a long numbered source list doesn't count unless the actual source is shown. Did Deborah (Pettegrew) Ackley give birth to Temperance in ~1815? Are you Deborah's descendant? I would appreciate your help!
Looking for descendants-Ackley family 1810-1818 Maine: Machias-Cutler-Whiting. Need Family Bible for Ackleys, Holmes, Pettegrew families for that period. Looking for a daughter Temperance Ackley born 1811-1818, possibly born 1815. Need her parents names. Please do not send me info from Ancestry. A Family Bible or Will is my only hope.
