Herman Ackerman, the subject of this sketch, was born on the 15th day of February, 1837, in Landefeld, near Spangenburg Gur-Hessan, Germany. His parents being interested more in his spiritual than in his material welfare had him confirmed in the Christian faith while yet in the Fatherland on May 21st, 1851. In the year 1857, on the 11th day of April, he left the Fatherland and sailed to America and landed in Wheeling, West Virginia, on July 22nd of the same year. On March 16, 1862, he was united in marriage to Mary Niesz, and to this union seven children was born, three sons and four daughters. Anna, the eldest of the children, preceded him to the better land on March 1, 1896. He leaves to mourn, his devoted wife and the following children, John Ackerman, near home; Henry Ackerman, of Somerton; Benjamin Ackerman, of Donora, Pennsylvania; Mrs. Jacob Christman, near home; Mrs. John Christman, of Calais, Ohio; and Mrs. John Seebach, of Alliance. Also twenty-nine grandchildren and ten great grandchildren. The first ten years of their married life was spent in Benwood and Wheeling, West Virginia. In March, 1872, they moved from Wheeling to Ohio near Monroefield on the farm known as the Jacob Bertram farm; here they lived dividing their joys and sorrows till in the fall of 1889, when they moved to the farm on which he died, which was on the 27th day of February, 1919, being at the time of his death 82 years and 12 days old. In November last he took sick with that dreaded disease pneumonia from which he never recovered sinking gradually until death relieved him. During his illness he was tenderly cared for by his loving wife and children and grandchildren, but more especially by two grandchildren, Clara Bintz and Viola Bintz, who were constantly at his bedside doing all that loving hands could do to restore him to health, but to no avail, He was laid away to await the resurrection morn on Sunday, March 2nd, in the St. John's Middle Church cemetery, followed by a large concourse of friends and relatives, amid beautiful floral offerings. The funeral was conducted by his former pastor, the Reverend Paul Saleske, of Chicago, Illinois.
