I recently put in a query for Roberts & Acker. I just received info that possibly the name Acker was Vanacker or Vonnauken. Does anyone have any info on the Vanacker surname? I believe they were from Pond Eddy, NY. Thank you for whatever help you can give me. Specifically I am looking for Richard and Catherine Acker or Vanocker. Richard was born approximately in 1802 and Catherine, his wife, born approximately 1804. Their children: Elizabeth born about 1829, Olive M., born about 1835 and Mary A. born about 1845. I believe Rachael was also a daughter born about 1827. There is also Edward Vanocker born about 1836.
