Hackley Family in Virginia
  • Hackley January 2013
    I am looking for any info on the Hackley Family in Virginia....my 4th greatgrandfather name was Rev. John William "Billy" Hackley and was born around (1800) in Virginia....he was suppose to have worked on his Slave owners Plantation... his slave owner's name was John Hackley and I am assuming he took the name from him...if anyone has any info I would really appreciate it...

    Hi,

    A John Hackley is my 4th great grandfather, who was also the slave owner. Our family plantation is Hackleys Cross Roads, Fauquier, Virginia. I have my 3rd great grandfather's death certificate (Calvin Hackley) which lists John as his father and Naney Hackley as his mother. Naney was likely a slave. I don't have any information about your relative; however, John may be a connection and perhaps the name of the plantation may also help you?
