I'm not sure if I can be of assistance, but my dad Charles Hackley was born in Kalamazoo, MI in 1927. His dad Donald was born in Kalamazoo in 1901. Don's dad Bert was born in Kalamazoo or Niles, MI in 1880. His dad Jerome 'Bo' Hackley was born free in Niles, MI in 1846. His older brother Calvin was born in Niles, MI in 1836. Their dad, the Rev. William 'Billy' Hackley was born in Fredricksburg or Culpeper, Va. These folks has other Hackley relatives in Paw Paw, Benton Harbour and other cities across Michigan. They all were either barbers, doctors or entrepreneurs. They migrated to Michigan from Chillocothe, Ohio.
Perhaps this is too much information.
