Birth: Aug. 24, 1877
Milwaukee County
Wisconsin, USA
Death: Jul. 11, 1953
Milwaukee County

Eldest child and son of John George Sr & Kate (Philipinski) Acker. Nine more children were born after him from 1879 to 1899 (five sisters and four brothers).

John married Laura May Cooper (b. 1881) in 1901 in Muskego, Wis. They had four children but only three survived infancy: Elroy Joseph (b. Mar 1902, d. Dec 1902), Frances Catherine (b. Oct 1903), Marie Lorraine (b. Feb 1906), and Harold Edwin (b. Jan 1917).

The family lived in Raymond in Racine County until the death of Joseph Elroy in 1907. Next they lived in Norway in Racine County. Around 1914 or 1915, the family moved to West Allis in Milwaukee County.

Coincidently, both he and his wife had fathers born in 1852. Laura's father died in 1913; John's in 1918.

John and Laura celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 1951.

John died at age 75 in 1953. He was survived by his wife and his three children, Mrs. Frances Verick, Marie and Harold. Also by grandson Glen Verick (b. 1928).
