Don't know if this is the same George. I have a George Ackerman b ca 1875 who m Marjorie Styles. Children Lionel, Marjorie, Reginald. Reginald was born 1903 in Ohio who died 4 Aug 1972, Buffalo, NY. They could have named his stepmother as his mother in his obit. I do not have any other information than this that I know of at least. Let me know if you think this could be the one.
