Re: William Wallace Ackerman/Betsy Sanders
Jean -- you likely have already discovered the answer to your question, because it's been such a long time since you posted this message...but just in case...
yes, William Wallace's father was John Hamlet Ackerman and named after his mother, Anna Wallace. who died in childbirth when Wm. was only 2.This line, if you haven't already discovered it, goes back to David Ackerman, born ca. 1615 at Oss, North Brabant, Dutch Republic.Am happy to share what info I have on this family, which includes that Wm. was married twice and had 10 known children (that *I* know of anyway!).
