Thank you for responding to my posting.After posting this message, I found some other info indicating that Henry's father was another Henry. I'm not exactly certain if there are any Abrahams in my line or not. Part of the issue is that I cannot determine if Henry (my gg)had brothers and sisters. I'm also not exactly certain if his father's name is Henry or not. There are sooooooooo many Henrys in the Ackerman family! I did discover that during the 1881 census that Edwin (my ggrandfather who came to America) and his brothers and sisters were all living with relatives. I do not know why. Anyhow, Henry's wife wasnamed Louisa. His mother may have been Martha Chalker, but again I cannot confirm this.The children are Edwin, Robert, Elizabeth, MaryEthel, Louisa and possibly a Fredrick. I cannot find any info on Fredrick. I did discover via the 1881 census that Elizabeth Married Fredrick Rayney and had a Fredrick. He could be the Fred in question as the siblings went to live with her in Hamlet.
If any of this sounds familiar to you, feel free to post again.
