Acton "Abe" Eckert was born to Charles & Augusta Eckert in Middletown New York.

I know nothing about Abe's early life despite extensive searching on Ancestry and FamilySearch.

Approximately 1930 Abe moved to Allentown where he worked as a machinist or mechanic, working for many years on the early sewing machines.

Around 1936 he married Cornelia Schmitt Gangewere and lived for the rest of his life with her on Hanover Avenue in East Allentown. They had no children.

Abe outlived his wife by 10 years and died in Cedarbrook, the County "retirement home".
