Re: Stephen, Josie, Thomas & Margaret
There's a death record for Margaret PETERS d. 12-May-1914 in Chicago.Her parents are listed as Stephen F. ACKERMAN b. Buffalo, NY and Margaret DOYLE b. IN.
There's an 8 yr old Stephen ACKERMAN in Buffalo, NY in the 1870 census in this household:
HIRT, Ignalz age 41 b. Wurtemburg
Mary age 38 b. Bavaria
ACKERMAN, Barney age 17 b. NY
Elizabeth age 16 b. NY
John age 13 b. NY
Stephen age 8 b. NY
Sophia age 6 b. NY
There's a christening record for a Stephanus ACKERMAN b. 8-May-1862, christened 11-May-1862 at St. Francis Xavier Church in Buffalo, parents were Joanis ACKERMAN and Mariae Josephinae BIEL.
I think the 1900 census got the childrens' parents' birth places reversed.Their mother was born in IN and their father in NY.
In 1900 Maggie is living with her father and says she is a widow, the mother of 7 children, 3 still living.I found a birth record for a Mamie ACKERMAN b. 7-May-1890 in Chicago.Father's name is listed as just ACKERMAN, mother's name as Maggie DOYLE.
There's a possible match for Thomas ACKERMAN in the 1910 census for Chicago.He is living with his wife, Ella, in the household of Sam and Mary ROSENBLOOM.He states that his father was b. NY and his mother in IL.
