#52Ancestors (1) Nancy Ackley Frederick

This is my first #52Ancestors post. The theme of '52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks' was created by Amy Johnson Crow at No Story Too Small. It's pretty self-explanatory. The hard part will be in the choosing. I'll start easy: alphabetically.

Without further ado, my first ancestor introduction is:

Nancy M. Ackley Frederick

Nancy Ackley was born 10 September 1828, likely in Rose Town, Wayne County, New York. She was a daughter of Daniel Ackley and Rachel Phelps.

The Ackley family was in Shiawassee Township, Shiawassee County, Michigan by the time Nancy married William Frederick, a neighbor, in 1847.

Nancy was William's second wife and a stepmother to his two daughters. Nancy and William had four known children, though I can only find two living to adulthood. They were a farming family, owning property first in Shiawassee County, then south in Locke Township, Ingham County, Michigan. They resided in Locke from the 1860's until their deaths. Nancy died in Locke on 10 December 1896, and is buried in Rowley Cemetery in Locke Township.

Genealogically, Nancy is a maternal great-great-great-grandmother.
