In reply to Bonnie (Acheson)Anderson. Yes I have said that I think that Dean Acheson and his father and grandfather are connected to the Achesons of Grouse Lodge, but have not been able to establish a definite connection. In a family letter written by the wife of Dean Acheson's Uncle, Arthur Acheson(brother of Edward), it is claimed that his great Uncle Thomas lived at Grouse Lodge. I have seen a family tree relating to the Grouse Lodge Achesons and did not find a Thomas in it.(In the Belfast Archives). I would be much obliged to receive any information you can give relating to the Grouse Lodge Achesons.
