(Ernest) Burnell Ackerly
I left some editing suggestions for this person. If you look at the gravestone of his wife Mary Dalziel (not sure why she's buried under her maiden name) it says that she was the wife of Ernest Burnell Ackerly. You have to magnify to see it. Both are buried at St. John's Elmont.

Thanks for the transfer.

BTW, I found a Brooklyn Daily marriage announcement (1897) and and obituary (1917) which reveal that Annie Remsen 129806075 on the back of Chas. Freyenhagen's memorial was his second wife (and he was her second husband), and that she died March 21 1917, which means that you can delete memorial #38745181 for "Annie Freyenhagen" because she is the same person as "Annie Remsen"(129806075). It also means that some descendant of hers must have seen the "1909" in death date of 2nd husband Charles in the cemetery record and had mistakenly thought it was her death death, engraving that on her memorial.

For more details see the sources I cite on both Charles' and Annie's memorials.

I (48224322)apologize for giving you the wrong #s last time. This time I requested them via the Edit function per your suggestion. The corrected #'s should be 38745185 & 41130518.
