My name is Helen Ackley, maiden name Sharpe (my paternal Grandfather, Harry Sharpe, moved to Kansas, and added the e back to the end of the name). So, that means that the Sutherland's are also ancestors with James Curtis Sharp and Mildred Sutherland as my paternal great grandparents. Nor super familiar with those further back, as my niece has been studying that line, while I have been working on my mother's side of the family.
But always glad to get in touch with family. Hope things are still going well for you, since this was posted back in Sep of 2009.
