The Ackerman(n) surname originated with their occupation and referred to "a cultivator of the ground, a farmer, husbandman, or ploughman... Today, the term is obsolete but its legacy as a surname lives on in a variety of spellings."Early immigrants appear to have clustered in three major areas of the United States: New Jersey/New York, New England, and the Midwest. This may reflect the common settlement trends for the Dutch, English, and Germans, respectively, in these regions of the country. Today, descendants are scattered throughout the United States. The majority of the biographical sketches cover individuals living in the 1700s and the 1800s. Entries are arranged alphabetically by the first name regardless of the spelling of the surname. Within similar given names, the subjects are arranged more or less chronologically by birth, marriage, or death dates. In some cases, the date used is that of the birth of a child or the subject's assumed participation in a specific event identified in the entry. A bibliography, photos, and a map enhance this work.
