The ink is very faded on 1861 census so ages may be 20 and 22. I copied it from the transcription. Could not read the ages on the original on line.

1861 census Prince Edward
There are three Ackerman children, Roda J aged 6, Jas H 5, and Melvin 1 living with Thomas and Sarah Rosabuck?
Looks like Emma Ackerman maybe married the above Melvin Rosabuck.
Did the senior Ackermans die and the children got placed with other families? Looks that way.

Thank you for this information.

I think you are correct that in the faded 1861 census the ages should be 20 & 22.

I also believe something happened to James' parents & they had to live with someone else. How sad.

Samuel and Araminta Gardner were my Great Great Granparents.

I will have a look and see what if anything I can find out regarding the why's and how's of this situation.

probably best if you check my tree "Ferguson Family"
all the detail is there....too tough to type out detail

one of the Gardner kids married into the Ackerman family.

looks like a marriage split just after James was born.
