David Edward Ackerson and Mae Tolgel
Posted by: Becky Bracken (ID *****2989) Date: June 20, 2009 at 13:34:25

Hello! I am looking for any information on Mae Tolgel. She and David Edward Ackerson had a child together while he was married to Elizabeth. That child was my grandmother, Leota Ardelia Ackerson, who was born July 2,1909 in Poweshiek, Iowa. Somehow David ended up with my grandmother, and Mae seems to have dropped off the face of the earth, as I can find NOTHING on her, other than she died in 1958. That's it. I would LOVE to have any information at all, as my grandmother never would speak about her childhood or her parents, or why she lived with "Uncle Roy and Aunt Mag" in Cedar Falls, Iowa. I do have a very old photo of her when she was about 8 years old with someone she said was her father, and a woman that she claimed to not remember who she was, but that it was NOT her mother. All we could ever get out of her about her mother was that she "ran off with a traveling salesman", and her father worked somewhere else, so she had to live with Roy and Mag. Funny, since I was born and raised in Cedar Falls also, and have since come to find out that David and Elizabeth lived there as well. Can anyone help me out here, to solve a very old family mystery?
