Re: William Acton m. Charity Grindstaff
I have James Acton, b. abt 1746 in England and died 1819 in Garrard Co.,KY as the father of William Acton.William's mother was Elizabeth McCraft, b. abt 1750 and died 1822 in Garrard Co.,KY. I have seen information about her being born in Scotland, but also other info saying Virginia - I'm not sure which is correct. James and Elizabeth were married about 1764 in Virginia and had 8 children. Unfortunately, I don't have any information on Charity Grindstaff, other than she was born in 1794.William was born in 1792 in Washington Co.,TN.I only know of 2 children, your Aaron and my Greenberry Acton, who was born in 1824 in Kentucky.There may have been others, but I do not know.
