My line of the Ackerman family is from John Ackerman and his wife Catherine Bleam (?)who had six sons and no daughters who settled near Flicksville in Northampton Co., PA but the settlement was renamed in 1870 Ackermanville. One of the sons Jacob (b. Apr 03.1775) married Margaretha Kolb. Two of their daughters are in my family tree, Margaret who married Peter Shook and Lydia who married Aaron Godshalk. These Ackermans were Mennonites. From the records recorded by Claire Ackerman Vliet in the 1950 THE ACKERMAN FAMILY book which I have used John and his wife Catherine had 36 grandchildren so they is a large group of Ackerman family members out there somewhere!!!
