I have for some time trying to find out where my great grandfather Achman came from My mother says he was a sailor and arrived in Arklow hear on the east cost of Ireland. He married (wife's name unknown) and had at least 4 children, only one son who joined the british army at 18 and was killed some months later.Records here are sketchy. His daughter Francis Ackman was my grandmother.My mother Doreen Jennings is 81 and does not seem to remember any details. Have you ever come accross an IRISH Ackman connection?I know it's a longshot.
yours in earnest, Doreena Jennings 44, Castlewood Gardens Carlow Ireland
