Recently posted message asking information on Joseph Acton/Matthew Acton.Have since found the following information on Joseph Acton:(On 03/14/1887, Evan "Strangler" Lewis defeated Joe Acton in Chicago, IL to win the Catch-As-Catch-Can Title.Joe Acton had been the first Catch-As-Catch-Can Champion by defeating Tom Cannon on 12/09/1881 in London, England.)I still seek information on this line of "Acton's.""Mathew Acton" was perhaps "Joe Acton's" brother.
