Re: John R. Ackerman born 1837, Westchester Co. NY
I am searching for the ancestors of Laura B. Ackerman, b. 28 July 1866 in Westchester Co. (probably New Castle) NY, m. Frederick (poss Wm. Frederick) Stephens, of New Castle, Westchester Co., NY, and d. 6 May 1948 in White Plains, Westchester Co. NY.
She was the daughter of John Ackerman of Westchester Co. and Sarah Wood. I know that Sarah Wood's father was Theophilus Wood, but know nothing of the Ackerman side except that they are from "the old family" of New York.
Would she be any connection to the Ackerman family you are researching?
