Have successfully traced lineage to 1710 and it ends there with John Atchinson who married Catherine Clark. The father of John Atchinson born 1710 is unknown. While information gathered states that John Atchison was born in Ireland, family information handed down in the form of "stories" indicate that there was a Quaker connection to the Pennsylvanian Acheson's and that there was an Elizabeth Acheson prior to 1710 who was married to an Acheson who was killed by Indians and who was already established in the US. They had children, one of which whose first name was Benoni [not Italian] which indicates that the father may have died at a younger age or that the child was illegitimate. The child named Benoni may have been a brother of John Atchison, as Benoni was born just prior to 1710 and one child of Elizabeth Acheson is identified by birth in the year 1710 [same as John Atchison] but not named. The family story states that the surviving spouse of the Acheson killed by Indians went to the Quaker church and requested monetary assistance and was denied because of the amount of animal stock, land, possessions, etc.
I am wondering if any of the decendents of John Atchison and Catherine Clark can help me locate parentage for John Atchison in Ireland, UK, Scotland or the US prior to 1711.
