James Ackerson at orphanage
I'm looking for info regarding my great grandfather, James A. Ackerson, b. 8/8/1897. He was left at an orphanage when he was 7 years old by his mother, and she never returned. The 1910 Census lists him at the St. Francis Industrial School, Bucks Co., PA. He later married Gladys Thompson and settled in Onondaga Co., NY. His death certificate lists his parents as John Ackerson and Mary (unknown). This is quite the family mystery... I'd appreciate any info or insight anyone can give me. Thanks!
