ONEONTA – A true Delaware County farm girl, Jill Kathleen MacCracken, was born on Aug. 23, 1950, to Frank and Peg (Moore) MacCracken in Stamford and raised in her beloved Charlotte Valley on Brick House Farm, along with her brothers, Jack and Frank, Jr.
Her days on the farm made her tough and ingrained in her heart the importance of family. Upon graduating from Charlotte Valley Central School, she went on to give her heart to other things: teaching, Clark Morris and Jesus.
