I know very little of my Grandfather Philipp Acker. Philipp signed my dad's report card that way. Philipp was born to Philip Adam or Adam Philip Acker and Mary Monken in 1872. I am not sure of the town or county in Texas. Philipp married Mary S, Schultze of New Berlin, Texas They had two children LenaT. Acker and Ernest Henry Acker ( my dad) born July 26, 1905. My grandparents were divorced before I was born,I never knew Philipp. My grandmother died in July 1953 in Robstown, Texas. I was told Philipp Died in the V. A. Hospital in Kerrville,Texas in 1957.
