Ackley, 92, miner, officer in the Civil war, justice of the peace, judge, county clerk, postmaster, mechanic and maker of stringed musical instruments. The old gentleman passed suddenly yesterday afternon when the machinery that had carried him through double the span of years most men are allowed, abruptly broke down.

Of Ohio stock, born in 1836, young Ackley felt the western urge in his blood and in his 'teens went with an emigrant train to Colorado, scene of an exciting gold rush. It has been the boast of the nonagenarian for years that he "knew Denver when the town was nothing but a log cabin on Cherry Creek."
The veteran leaves two daughters, Mrs. Sophia Emerson of Cleveland, and Mrs. Minnie McArthur of Wadsworth; two sons, Frank and G. A. Ackley of Wadsworth; a sister, Julia Stearns of Pittsburgh, and 15 grandchildren and 11 greatgrandchildren. A brother, John M. Ackley, who died in 1925, was a member of the Nevada territorial legislature.
