OK, here goes...
1. Pulaski county is in Kentucky. No twp.
2. I have no death record, but I have spoken with one of his gr.gr.grandchildren. She had very little usable info but did tell me that he and his wife both passed away there and were buried in Pulaski.
3. The connection to Junius is circumstantial at best right now. The line follows in this manner: my grandfather was Luciaon Acree (he really spelled it that way) to George W. Acree to Junius C. Acre to Nathan K. Aker/Acre. Nathan was born in VA (haven't been able to locate the county yet) in 1809 according to census data. Nathan appears in the Pulaski 1840 census at the same time that John's child count changes. They both spell it Acre at this point. John resumes the Aker spelling in the next census report and Nathan uses it in the Pulaski tax lists. However, Nathan removes to Adair Co, KY after marrying Frances J. Ridge in Pulaski and the name changes back to Acre. I have yet to uncover a will or anything yet. I am planning to head to Sommerset, KY (the Pulaski County seat) during my spring break in a couple of weeks (I teach) and do a little more digging. I have been trying to make this connection with actual documentation for nearly 4 years and I just can't find the papers. ARGH!!
4. The only one that I can definitely place with records is John Jr born 1800 in VA (through census data). He had several according to the census reports but there were no names. His wife was Catherine Fitterling born in VA.
I am going to be out of town for a few days and won't be back around the computer until tuesday. Thanks so much for all of your help. You have no idea how appreciated it is! Be sure to thanks your father for all of his great work, I'm sure that I'm not the only one who appreciates it. Enjoy the day...
