James and Morris Ackerman brothers?
I find a James Ackerman buried in Greenwood Cemetery in 1852. He was 91 at the time. In 1850 he and Ann both age 90 are living in Brooklyn. In tracing back through censuses, I find this James living in NYC 9th ward in 1820. A Morris Ackerman, who I believe to be my ancestor is living in the same ward and is in the age range as James. James appears to have no children living. James is buried in the plot with Morris' grandaughter, Ellen Ackerman Sharkey. Does anyone know who the father of James and Morris could be?
