Re: Acker Surname Mail List - Ed L. Acker,
I have just finished transcribing a personal journal kept by my husband's grandfather, Henry Clements Burge, dating from 11-15-1915 to 09-26-1920 in the Jones and Fisher Counties, TX areas.
One of the references in the journal is to Acker, Ed L.Ibelieve this to be the Ed Acker born 11 APR 1878 in Eastland, Eastland, Texas, married 03 APR 1901 in Fisher, TX, Died 15 OCT 1944.
This is not our line but the reference provides some personal insight that I believe Mr. Acker's family might appreciate:
December 12, 1915:I took dinner at the Star Hotel yesterday.Ed Acker, and Jess Green and Jack Mabean were there also.There was a jolly good fellowship expressed at this occasion.At supper we had a leather drummer to enliven the meal.He told of a tight he got into on a muddy road this fall.He ran off of a little tin culvert and could not get his car back in the road.He went up on a nearby hill to see if he could see a light, but in vain.He then started back to his car and fell into a deep ditch among thorns.The way he told it; he made it humorous.
The Star Hotel was apparently in Rotan, Fisher Co., TX.
Hope this is of some use to someone in this family line.
