Re: Acton Family in Alabama
Dear Ruby Prescott
John and his wife, Jennie Roberts are both mentioned in Mrs. Faye Axford Book.
Martha was the tenth child born October 2
1812 in Wayne County Kentucky. She came to
Alabama with her family in1816 and settled
in North Shelby County. I continue to take
care of the old cemetery where John and Jennie are buried. Jennie died in 1826- one of the oldest markers in Shelby county.
Faye comes to our family reunion every 2nd Sunday in May at the William Acton cemetery
located adjacent to the Altadena valley
Presbyterian Church in South Jefferson County
I also take care of this cemetery.
William was the sixth child born to John
and Jennie and my GGGGRANDFATHER
