Did this James Acton Sr. happen to live in Cocke County, TN for a period of time? We have found some questions on research we have found online and actual records and are now totally confused. We have James Acton born bef 1746 in England and died 1819 in KY who had a son named James b4-1775 in Henry Co., VA,married 8-19-1822 Washington Co. TN to Celia Bayles and died 10-1849 Jackson Co. IL. He should be about age 75 by 1860. Here is what the 1850 Cocke Co., TN Census Lists: james Acton 60, bTN, Celia 47, Martha 23, Martin 21, Elizabeth 19, Arty? 16, James M. 15, Priscilla and Albert (twins) 12, Emeline 8. Another Actin/Acton family at that time in same county was William D. 27, Hariet 22, Mary A. 12. The 1860 Cocke Census lists: James Ecton 70, Elizebeth 58, Elizabeth 30, Martin 24, Albert 22, Drucilla 22, Emaline 21. Next Ecton family: Martin Ecton 30, Sarah 26. Third Ecton family: William 36, Harriet 23, Mary A. 10, Andrew J. 8, Martin 6, Mariah2. Not sure that these fit. My line after James Jr. is Martha born ~1827 who married Ashby Wood Sr. b1812 Cocke County (Newport) TN. Any light into this subject would help.
