Onondaga Twp, 1848 Concession R - River Lots 84 & 85

Posted: 17 Sep 2013 7:55PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: ACKERT/CORNER
James Ackert lived 1848 Onondaga Twp., Brant, Gore District, Canada West on River Lot 85.

James had just three cultivated acres of the total 82 acres on his lot at this time. He lived next door to Allen Corner and his sister, Jane Ackert Corner who had River lot 84.

Source of above info:
census/tax assessment for Onondaga Twp. Brant in 1848:
Householder :Ackert, James;
Concession R [River] Lot #85; 79 unculivated acres, 3 cultivated acres, 82 total acres;
# 1 school district; 2 oxen four years old and upwards; amount of ratable property other than land: 8; Ratable property: 26 pounds, 16 shillings 2 pence

Is anyone looking for this family beside me, or does anyone have any information that could validate when this property was purchased, both for James Ackert and Allan Corner.

Would be very grateful for any and all suggestions.
