Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in 1930 and raised in Barron, Wisconsin. I served in the Army Signal Corps from 1948 - 1952 and was discharged as a Staff Sgt. Worked for the Post Office in Barron for three years. Graduated from Wisconsin State College at Eau Claire, WI. in 1960 and then went to work for the US Food & Drug Adm. Retired in 1988. Currently living in Sun City, Georgetown, TX with my wife Janet.

Since I have no relatives buried in Texas, I will transfer any memorials that are your relatives or friends to you. Just click on EDIT in the upper righthand corner of the memorial, select the first line in the menu and request the transfer. Be sure to include your ID number.

I wish to thank all those who have pointed out my errors so they could be corrected and who have provided additional information for the bio, such as obituaries.

Thank you for the transfer of Emma's memorial. I do very much appreciate all the hard work you put into setting up and photographing this memorial along with all the other memorials you have made for our family. Thank you, Charlotte

Good afternoon, I am a Vermont Civil war buff, and am working on a project to identify the last resting places of many "Old Soldiers" that had any ties to Vermont. I have discovered that you have contributed several photo's for Find A Grave Memorials of some of these patriots. As of now, I see nine in Brown County. There may be others to locate. I am asking you if I may use these photo's to post on the Vermont Civil war site? (

Of course you will receive credit for this.

Thank you for your consideration.

Thank you so much. Record #20512848. The comment about the name appearing in the census and the family not knowing where "Ackerman" came from should be removed - if it can be. Can't imagine who put it there.

You have been so helpful. It is much appreciated.

Nelson Ackerman Russell's # is 20512848
I don't know this individual. Someone, thinking it was one of my relatives, Nelson T. Russell, put information in that is wrong. Hopefully, I have deleted the parents listed there and the siblings. If you would just delete the bio about Nelson Ackerman Russell, it would be appreciated. It is wrong. I do not see a way to delete that.

The correct Nelson T. Russell died in GA and someone else has taken care of it.

I have found another find-a-grave for the correct Nelson T. Russell. Everything on the Nelson Ackerman Russell site needs to be removed, including parents and siblings. It is, apparently, the wrong Nelson Russell. See Nelson T. Russell in Odum City Cemetery, Wayne Co., GA.

It could be that Marion Presswood needs to be contacted.

It is possible that the grave marker is incorrect for this site. I have inserted the correct marker for Nelson T. Russell. The Nelson Ackerman Russell may not be accurate.

All the information about parents and siblings is correct for Nelson T. Russell. But he is buried in Odum City Cemetery, Wayne Co., GA. You will note there is another site for him in GA - this shows FL

Anyway I can help you correct this, will be glad to do so.
