Johannes ACKER
Brigitta BINZ

Birth:  5 Jun 1818
Baptism:  Zell, Ortenaukreis, Freiburg, Baden
Death:  9 May 1894, Sheboygan, Sheboygan Co., WI

Father appears to be:  Johannes ACKER (1784-1844)
Mother appears to be:  Maria Genovefa HERR (1787-1846)

What links John to these parents is the birthdate, 5 Jun 1818, and place.  There's an outside chance these are a coincidence, but I doubt it.  Zell and Ettenheim are both in the Ortenaukreis [Ortenau Dist.], in the Freiburg Administrative Region of Baden-Wuerttemberg (formerly Baden).
