Suggested Correction. The (former) Ackley Farm was located on the Spring Hill Road in Tuscarora Township, Bradford County, PA. The parents of Alfred Henry Ackley were Stanley and Ophelia (Cogswell) Ackley. The parents are buried at the Spring Hill Cemetery, formerly known as the Ackley Cemetery. The cemetery land may have been a portion of the Ackley farm given its location adjacent to the farm. The cemetery is located on Whitmiller Road and is surrounded by the farm fields on three sides.

B D and Rodeheaver came to Spring Hill on September 22, 1947 to dedicate a new organ at the Spring Hill Methodist Church. (newspaper article published) B D was 75 at this time.
