I received a document just today in the mail. I am going to retype it here to the best of my ability. There are no dates on the document. Susan Aitken was my gg-grandmothr. I sure hope someone out there can help me sift through this. Susan Aitken I show having been born sometime around 1860 an have been told she was born in Phildelphia, PA, USA. I have also been told she died young from some type of plague. I do not have a date of death for her. She and her husband William Henry Acton had the following children- Osmond, Marith, Karel Stephen, Elrad Noel, Eldon, Elnar Rinnah. They lived in East Dulwich and Dartford areas of England. William Hery Acton was born 04/25/1860 in St Oswaldi, Chscire, Chester, Essex. Their son,Karel Stephen Acton was my grandfather and he married a Phoebe Marie Baxter.
