Acklin and the Suffragettes

 From History of Woman Suffrage: 1900-1920:

 ...Col. Joseph H. Acklen (Acklin) gave his services as attorney for years to the State association without charge.  Perhaps it was because he was the son of a strong woman (Adelicia Hayes Franklin Acklin Cheatham)?

The Calvin M. McClung Historical Collection has a newspaper article by Col. Acklen related to suffrage.
