Re: Up State NY Ackerman
If by up state NY, you mean Jefferson County, N. Y., I suggest you look in the Old Letters section of my website:
Several of the letters refer to the Ackermans, once of an area in Jeff. Co. called Pillar Point and/or Chaumont.Many of the family went to Michigan.As I understand it, there were several Ackermans in the Michigan area.
Hope you find something interesting.
