Diane, The Ackerman's in my tree are decendants of Christain Ackermann.He was born and died in Eutingen in Gaeu, Wuerttemberg, Germany. His widow Cecilia Plaz Ackerman and her 11 children (and some of their spouses) came to the US from 1848-1852.
I have information on all but one Ackerman - Kasmir Ackerman.He was b 10-26-1824.He landed in New York 5-1852. He declared his citizenship on 11-1852 in Genesee County Michigan.
Thank is where the trail ends.Any info would be greatly appreciated.
