Re: Acton family history
I'm sorry, I looked in various places like usgenweb.com, familysearch.org and geneaology.com for information about Wm Acton/Charity Grindstaff. usgenweb.com is a very useful source of information, especially when dealing with people who existed in the mid to late 1700's. I didn't find one reference to William Acton. Only a few census exist prior to 1810, most information is taken from church records, deeds, court or will records back then.
I did find a marriage between Margaret Acton and Ratliff Thompson married 15 Feb 1797 with a William Acton as the father. This was in Va.
The information I found on familysearch.org linking this William to James Acton and Elizabeth craft/McCraft was submitted by:
Elizabeth Schooler Watkins
61 S Pomona Rd
Yakima, WA 98901
Perhaps, if this address is still good, you could write her and ask her where she got her information.
