There are two Thomas Achesons born around 1811 from PA that moved to Ohio.
My line is the Thomas Weir Acheson, son of Thomas and Elizabeth Jane Cummins. Thomas Weir married K(C)atherine Leavitt Hooker in Franklin County, OH on Sept 21 1840.
I just found this marriage announcement as well as Julia (Julie) Acheson's marriage to Elijah Alvord in Franklin County, OH on Apr 22 1864.
I am looking for any information on when Thomas Weir went to Ohio. Did he go as part of the land rush? If so, he must have gone with family members, but I cannot find any information on that. He died in 1862 just before his son Mortimer Acheson was born, but I have no idea of what caused his death.
I would like some help of the Acheson's in Ohio on where to go (in person) to do research on this line?
