Tibela Bertha Garrels Ackerman

Birth: Feb. 27, 1898
Carroll County
Iowa, USA
Death: Dec. 27, 1918
Hampton
Franklin County
Iowa, USA

Buried near her uncle Paul Gerdes. I can only assume that is how she ended up in the county, as I don't see how she could have met Mr. Ackerman otherwise. I speculate that her death was as a result of her son's birth. Influenza was in the area at the time of her death, so that may have been a contributing factor. Her parents raised her son, and her husband remarried 9 and a half years after her death.
