Follow-up on Hackley Manuscript
Just a quick note on the Hackley manuscript mentioned in the post on "The (Supposed) Ancestors of Nicholas Ackley". I heard back from Damien Rostar at the Hackley Library in Muskegon, Michigan, and the original manuscript referred to in Louis P. Haight's book, The Life of Charles Henry Hackley, was found in the library. Unfortunately there was no additional information in the manuscript; Damien reports that "The item itself is exactly the same as the genealogical section of Haight's book, right down to the cryptic citations (I checked line-by-line to make sure the information was the same in each)." Thanks to Damien for his diligence in following up! So for now the information in Haight's book is all we have to go on.
