Re: Ackers from Alsace
From LDS Film #718625 Memmeslhoffen,B.R. France Marriage Proclamations I extracted the following info:Miss Madelaine Acker married Jean Stupfel 13 Jan 1839; she was age 24 daughter of Antoine Acker age 51, laborer of Memmelshoffen and wife Madelaine Keller age 42 of Memmelshoffen; Jean Stupfel was age 29, weaver of Memmelshoffen, son of Jean Stupfel age 56 residing Mem. and Francoise Wolffstein age 59 of Mem.
I think this Madelaine is first cousin of the Magdalena that I am researching.My Magdalena also came to the USA married, removed to Wisconsin and died in Outagamie county in WI; she also lived for a short time in Milwaukee, WI.She may have had a brother, Michael Acker who came to USA, married, had at least a son and daughter born in NY; I've not been able to trace him further, so would like to contact his descendants.Please keep in touch.
