Jacob Ackerman © Cherokee OK Messenger 09-02-1924 Submitted by: Jo Aguirre
November 24, 1856 - August 26, 1924
The community was overshadowed by grief last Tuesday morning when the Death Angel called from our midst Jacob Ackerman of near Burlington.
Mr. Ackerman had been in poor health for a number of years, but death came unexpectedly and was caused by heart trouble. He was operated on four years ago and had suffered continuously, but patiently, since that time.
The deceased was born November 24, 1856, in Goghdorf, Germany and died at his home south of Burlington, August 26, 1924, age 67 years nine months and two days.
He came to this country when a young man, resigning in Michigan, then Nebraska and later coming to Oklahoma, where he united in marriage with Mrs. Elizabeth Kildow, July 9, 1898. To this union were born five children, four sons and one daughter.
Mr. Ackerman was a man of sterling qualities a patient loving husband, and father, a good Christian, a real neighbor to all with whom he came in contact. He will be greatly missed by the entire community. He could truly say with Paul, "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith."
He leaves to mourn his loss a loving wife, and five children: William, Edward, Ezra Bennie, Esther Ackerman. Also three children by a former marriage: Mrs. H. H. Hardesty of Cherokee, Mrs. Emma Krause of Sweetwater, Nebraska, and John Ackerman of North Dakota, besides two step – sons, Jake and Adam Kildoh and one brother, August Ackerman, who lives in Germany.
Funeral services were conducted by Rev. O. L. Gibson of Cherokee.
