Benjamin F. ACKERMAN

Wilson Cemetery Cemetery
Milam County,

June 11, 1829, Coeysman, Albany County, New York - March 19, 1901, Cameron, Milam County, Texas


Mr. B.F. Ackerman died suddenly Tuesday morning of heart failure, superinduced by chills. He had eaten a hearty breakfast and apparently was all right. A little later he complained of having a chill and was assisted to his room. Shortly after a friend entered his room to see how he was getting along and found him sitting in a chair dying. The friend immediately went for a physician and summoned Dr. Monroe, but Mr. Ackerman was passed all human aid when they arrived. The body was removed to the residence of his step-son, T.G. Sampson, from where on Wednesday morning the funeral procession formed and followed the hearse to the Goodhue Wilson grave yard, where the mortal body of Mr. Ackerman was returned to earth. "For dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return." The deceased was 72 years of age and was an old citizen of Cameron, and was at one time worth considerable money. He was liberal hearted and well liked by all his friends. Three children survive him, B.F. Ackerman, who is married and lives in Palestine, Will Ackerman, who lives in Cameron, and Mrs. G.B. Tracy, who lives with her husband about five miles in the country. Our sympathy goes out to all in their affliction.
