George W. Ackley is a native of New York, having been born in Seneca county. November 11, 1819. In his native county he grew to manhood, receiving a fair com­mon school education and in early life se­ lecting agriculture as his vocation. In 1846 he was united in marriage to Miss Almira Yale, a native of Seneca County and a de­scendant of Governor Yale, of Connecti­cut, one of the early patrons of Yale Col­lege. New Haven, and the man after whom the college was named. For a number of years after his marriage Mr. Ackley prose­cuted his labors on the farm and so success­fully that he amassed enough means to justify him in coming west and investing in some of the fertile acres of Jackson county, Michigan. It was during the early 'fifties that he arrived in Jackson county and he immediately invested in one hundred and sixty acres of good land in Pulaski town­ship, a part of section 21. Here he and his wife have resided for upwards of half a century. Prosecuting their farm work until the weight of years admonished them to desist.
