I am descended from Robert Ackerman and Roxalana Childs, but I am researching my husband's Ackerman family and have chased it to Dewitt C. (DC) Ackerman who married Hellen and had Frank and Ed. E. before leaving the area for Wisconsin where he served in the Civil War.The family then landed in Minnesota. The problem is there are two Dewitt C. Ackermans from the area. The other married Thankful and stayed put. The one I am following I believe lived with Abram, his wife Angeline, an elderly Ralph and Mary.I don't know the relationship of these people to each other. I believe this is the right Dewitt as Abram and Angeline end up in WI near him with their two daughters and younger Ralph and Mary (again I don't know the relationships). I have hit a brick wall and would appreciate any help. I know my husband and I both descend from David Ackerman (1662), I just can't prove his line ~ yet. (His father's oral tradition)Thanks!!
