Dear Ms. Litwin,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1900 Census and the Population Schedules for the 1910 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) but unfortunately, digital images for Berrien County, Michigan have not been added to the Catalog yet.
Therefore, we searched the 1900 Census on Ancestry and located a Augusta Ackonhusen/Anna Augusta Ackenhusen/A Ackonhusen who was born in Illinois on August 1862. We also search the 1910 Census on Ancestry and located a Augusta Ackenhusen. We also located the 1882 Illinois marriage record for John and Augusta; the births of William & John. Additional records pertaining to the family were located. To view these records, there may be a fee. Or you may view these records online at one NARA's facilities for free via ALIC. For the nearest NARA location, please consult our web page at https://www.archives.gov/locations/. Also, some of the images from Ancestry are available for free on Family Search at https://www.familysearch.org/en/.
For more information, please contact the Michigan History Center.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!

She is also my Great Grandmother on my Father's side (Duane Edward Ackenhusen).
She is the wife of John H. Ackenhusen.
She is mother of Ernst Ackenhusen, also, I believe, and Grandmother of Duane Edward Ackenhusen.
Let me know if we can share information. There are not many Ackenhusens, but first names duplicate. It gets confusing to follow.
Augusta was born in Chicago Illinois. According to her death certificate her parents were Louis Freudenstein and Martha Elizabeth Piffert.
Lud(wig) Freudenstein arrived 6 Aug 1852 in NYC on the ship Elise. He was 26 years old and a smith from Hesse.
Martha Elizabeth Pippert [f's and p's are often confused in German] arrived 26 Jul 1854 in NYC on the ship President Smidt. She was 21 years old and from Niedermöllrich Hesse.
Louis (Ludwig) Freudenstein's will
Augusta is listed with her parents and siblings in the 1870 census in Chicago
She married John Ackenhusen in Chicago on 18 Nov 1882.
