Isaac Beadle Acker's mother was Sarah Bedal. She was the daughter of Isaac Bedal and Sarah Palmer. Isaac, Sarah, and family moved from Washington Twp., Dutchess County, New York, to Hallowell Twp., Prince Edward County, Upper Canada (Ontario), in the late 1790s. Isaac was most likely the son of James Bedell and Mary Baldwin (and therefore descended from Robert and Blanch Bedell of Hampstead, Long Island). Sarah's parents were Elias Palmer and Elizabeth Field. The Palmers were Quakers. Both Elias and Elizabeth's genealogies can be traced back many generations.
