George Ackason, M. D., one of the earliest practitioners of Golden City, became a resident of Barton County in 1876. He was born in Greene County, Tenn., and is a son of J. H. and Letitia (Walker) Ackason, also natives of Tennessee. In 1856 the parents removed to Cedar County, Mo., and the father purchased a farm near Stockton, upon which our subject was reared. He received his early education in the common schools of the county, and, in 1872, entered upon the study of medicine. He attended Louisville Medical College, and, in 1874, located at Stockton, where he entered upon the active practice of his chosen profession. After remaining in Stockton nearly a year, he removed to Golden City, and here has since continued his practice, and ranks among the leading physicians of Barton County, enjoying a large and lucrative patronage, which is daily increasing. Dr. Ackason was married, in 1875, to Maggie Turner, a native of Missouri. They have one child, Frank.
