Good day to you, Mr. Sheffield: Regarding Ackerman-263 and Ackerman-2072, I found a 1900 census. What is of note is that Samuel Betts(age 84), the father of Mary Betts, is listed as living with George and Mary. This helps to confirm that Mary Thresa (Hamm) Ackerman is the spouse of a different George. I changed the date of birth for George based on this census and you will be pleased to see that this profile is now open. I have been working so hard on other profiles but you provided the impetus for me to check data just in case. Thank you.

Thanks for filling the blanks on some of the tree I am still trying to figure out where everyone actually fits with me. However I have been to the family cemetery where most of the people you added are laid to rest. I have a family tree that another family member completed. The research is time consuming however is rewarding justed wanted to say thanks and if I can help out in some way I am about an hour away from the cemetery and where my grandparents home was located.

My Mother-in-law was a Sheffield from near Philadelphia. Her Dad was Walter Sheffield a prominent landscape architect from way back who designed parks. I see your Sheffield's are from the mid-west. I just check the relationship finder and there is no connection. Sorry to bother you. :)
