Emma Ackerman Sturges (New Jersey, New York)
I am trying to find burial and genealogical information on Emma Ackerman. She had a brother named James L. Ackerman. I know she has ties to Bergen County, New Durham, New Jersey. I couldn't say if she was born or died there but she definetly did reside there for a while (1870s) and possibly taught school in the area. She might also have ties to Chatham, NY, but I'm not sure about that. She married Cornelius Sturges and had daughters Emma and Mary, but financial troubles and unhappiness caused them to separate. Cornelius is interred at Babylon Rural Cemetery on Long Island. Emma & Mary are in Woodlawn.
