I can't get to all my information right now (my computer is in the
Jacob Ackerman was the husband of Elizabeth, and father of John Ackerman
Elizabeth ran off with Frederick Nutz, taking the two children, and came
first to Columbia (c1789), a settlement on the Little Miami, in now
Cincinnati OH (Columbia Parkway). They then moved on to Montgomery Co
OH, where John married Mary Hole (c1801, possibly married by Elder Jacob
Miller), and moved to Gratis OH. Elizabeth seems to have been
abandoned by Frederick Nutz (he remarries). She lived with John at
Gratis, and then as he moved to Eaton OH, she is buried there (1833).
John was Brethren.
Jacob Ackerman advertized in the Frederick Co MD paper about Elizabeth
and Frederick Nutz - then moved to Gettysburg PA, and remarried.
