Ten year old son of Mr. Ackerson, New Hartford, dies from lightning!
Hello again Cousins!
I found an article in the Burlington Weekly Hawkeye, on July 28, 1860, that states the following:
The Cedar Falls Gazette say that a lad about ten years old, son of Mr. Ackerson of New Hartford, was killed by lightning on Friday morning last.
Anyone have any idea as to who this "Mr. Ackerson" was and who the ten year old son was?
Thanks, Connie Westcott
