ACKERMAN, NELSON - La Plata County, Colorado | NELSON ACKERMAN - Colorado Gravestone Photos


Animas Cemetery
La Plata County,

"Little Nelson, son of T. and A. Ackerman. Died May 23 1882. Aged 2 Ys. 9 Ms. 15 Ds."

There is a little foot stone several yards away, obviously moved.

Nelson, born in Kansas, was the son of Theran and Augusta M. Ackerman who lived in Durango for a very brief time. Nelson was killed when his mother's friend accidentally shot him while fending off a would-be robber who was breaking into their tent, their home at the time.
