STUCK! Desire help with my ACK family. I am researching my gggreat grandfather John ACK who was born in 1833. Early records states he was born in Delaware, later records state he was from Virginia. In my research I don't find John untill the 1870 census in Prince George VA. In looking at birth records of his children I know he was in VA in 1862.I have not found any other family in VA with this name.Every ACK I find after 1870 are related to John ACK.intersting thing is I found an Acke family in the 1850 census in Sussex Delaware.How can I find a connetion with this ACK family ? If this was where my John came from? I have not found any ACK family in VA before my John ACK. I understand in Delaware blacks were mostly free.How do I do research in Delaware for this family of ACKS?
