William Acker was educated in the public schools of Marshall County and is also a graduate of the Kansas Normal College at Paola. Until twenty years of age he lived with his adopted parents, but at the age of sixteen had begun teaching in Marshall County. For ten years most of his time was spent in the school room. Since then he has been occupied with stock raising and farming and has been one of the leading buyers and shippers of cattle out of Marshall. He has a fine stock farm adjoining Vermillion on the east. Mr. Acker makes a specialty of Hereford cattle and Poland China hogs. Besides his substantial country home, where he resides, he owns a garage in Vermillion and also a store building in that city.

Mr. Acker was superintendent of schools of Marshall County during 1888-90. He has held various township offices in Noble Township and has been a director of the public schools. He is a republican and is identified with Vermillion Lodges of Masons and Odd Fellows. He is a Scottish Rite Mason. Mr. Acker married in 1887 at Wymore, Nebraska, Miss Ella C. Sheridan, for many years a successful teacher in Marshall County, and a daughter Ola W. D. and Melinda Sheridan. Her parents are both now deceased.
