Biography of Augustus Acker
Richmond County, NY Biographies





AUGUSTUS ACKER was born in the city of New York, November 30th, 1860, of German parentage, was educated in the public schools of that city, and when graduated at the age of seventeen years, he entered the law office of his brother, Edward A. Acker, and began studying for the bar

In 1877, he came to Staten Island, and made New Brighton his home, where in February 1889, he was elected justice of the peace, and on the following November, justice of the court of sessions, and in 1893, was reelected justice of the peace and justice of the court of sessions, receiving the largest majority ever given, both of which offices he now holds.

Judge Acker probably hears more important cases than any other justice in the entire county, and his thorough knowledge of the law, and the uniform fairness with which all his judgments are rendered, have given him the title of "the model justice."

While fearless and impartial in the performance of his duty, his strict administration of justice is tempered with that mercy which wells from his sympathetic heart and perennial good nature.

Mr. Acker married Miss Caroline Almstaedt, of New Brighton, on March 26th, 1883, and he has an interesting family of three children, two daughters and one son.
