Ezra and Thomas Acker of Canada and Michigan
I'm looking for information on brothers Ezra A. and Thomas W. Acker.Ezra was born in Tuscola County, Michigan ca. 1863.He married Clara Mae Martin of Gilford in 1887.They had two children: Esther and Ruby.Esther married Jess Ellison and Ruby married William Bennett.He remarried Stella Telfor nee Raymond in 1917 and moved to Belding, Mich, where he died in 1920.
Thomas W. was likely born in Toronto, Ontario in 1868, and may have lived in Quebec at some time.He immigrated to Detroit sometime in the 1890s and married Jessie Miller of Ireland in 1895 in Detroit.They had at least 2 children, Percy W. and Adeline A.Thomas died in Detroit in 1923.
I have no events directly connecting the brother and only believe they are related because both list their parents as William Acker and Elizabeth Griffis in their marriage records.In census records, they have listed their father as being born in Germany, Eng. Canada (Ontario), or Fr. Canada (Quebec).They have listed their mother as born in either England or France.Ezra is always listed as being born in Michigan, likely Tuscola County, and Thomas as being born in either Eng. Canada or Fr. Canada.His affidavit for marriages lists him as being born in Toronto.
I cannot find Thomas in the Canadian censuses.I cannot find Ezra in the US census prior to 1910.I would love to hear from anyone that believes either Thomas or Ezra fits into a family they have been researching.
