My paternal ggmother was Mary Adeline Acton & my family knows very little about her. Hopefully someone has some helpful hints for me. "Addie" married my ggfather Frederick William Buehre b.1850 (no idea who his parents were either)in Booneville, MO ~1880 & they had one child (my grandfather Frederick Acton Buehre). My father says that she never told ANYONE how old she was & she died in Pittsburg, KS in the late 1920's. We only know that "Addie" had a sister (Amanda Acton) who married a John Bacchus & that they, in turn, had a daughter Rose Arnold who has since died as well & had no children. Thanks in advance!
