Re: Henry Acker, Penn b. early 1800s
Hello.I can tell you that Heinrich Acker on the Loyal Judith in 1732, b.c. 1700 died in 1752, had 13 children, many died young.His obituary is listed in the records of Keller's Church, Tohickon Twp, Bucks County, PA, a church that he helped found.About 95% or better of the Acker records found at Ziegel's Church, Lehigh County, PA, (Northampton Co until 1812) are the line of Philip Jacob Acker b. 1695, brother of Heinrich, also on the Loyal Judith in 1732.Philip Jacob was one of the founding members of Ziegel's Church.A few of the Acker records at Ziegel's belong to the descendants of Christian Acker, b. 1696, brother of Henry and Philip Jacob, who immigrated in 1755.Many of the descendants of Christian ended up in Blair and Huntingdon Counties of PA.Feel free to email me directly if you are interested in any of our Acker material as I am still looking for many descendants.
