Re: William Ackerman-1913?
My great grandfather was Delos Ackerman who had a son named William from his first marriage to Mary Southwick.
William was born abt 1871 and is listed in the Kalamazoo city directory living near Delos and his second wife Mary Chatfield Ackerman in the early 1900's
This William moved to Chicago for a short time then moved back to Kalamazoo in 1906. Could this be your William or maybe his father??
My William had a half-brother named Herbert and a half-sister named Myrtle
