Corporal Francis Ackley of Elmira, has been cited for exceptional bravery under fire near Cunel, France, October 14, 1918. Corporal Ackley went to Elmira about four years ago. In September, 1917, he was sent from that city in selective service contingent. He was assigned to Co. D, 60th Infantry. The official citation of Corporal Ackley, in which he is awarded the DISTINGUISHED SERVICE CROSS, reads as follows; “Corporal Francis Ackley, Co. D, 60th Infantry. For extraordinary heroism in action near Cunel, France, October 14, 1918. After his company has suffered severe losses from an enemy machine gun, Corporal Ackley, volunteered to silence it single-handed. Advancing from the flank, under heavy sniping fire, he surprised the crew, killed three gunners with his pistol and then turned the machine gun on the enemy, covering the advance of his detachment to the position and inflicting severe losses on hostile troops” Mrs Clarence Hancock is an aunt of Corporal Ackley and he has many relatives throughout this section, his father Jay Ackley, having lived on the John Ackley farm in Westfield township, where Corporal Ackley was born. A dispatch states that Corporal Ackley died in a hospital in France following wounds received on Oct 16. He had partially recovered from the wounds when pneumonia set in with fatal results.- Westfield Free Press
