Shari I have a Jacob Acker born about 1823 in PA died Sept 26 1893. He was married to "Eliza" per the census. They had one living son Elias born in Medina County, OH and he married Mary Catherine Howe and my family goes from there. I have not been able to find anything on Jacob Acker or his wife. One census states his parents were from Germany, another says from PA. I am leaning towards Germany.
If there is a tie somewhere, would like to hear from you. Have information on descendants.
