Their daughter Laura E. married my GGGfather Daniel Gardner Ackerson. My mother, Hazel, was his GG and the daughter of Elmer Walter Ackerson.

The only information I have about the Edward Holben who was the son of Israel and Sarah (Siegfried) Holben is that he married an "Indian girl" and he died before 1905 in Oklahoma.
