I am looking for the parents of James Acton.He was a horse trader.He married Mary Ann Martha Crockett of Bridgeport, Franklin Co. KY in 1835.James died before 1850.He had two children:a girl and a boy:William Dandridge Acton. Nothing is known about James Acton.However, the Crockett side is well documented to Anthony Crockett of VA/KY, 1700s.
To make the search more difficult, William D., James son, joined the CSA as a capt. of the Company "KY", 5th regiment.When he was issued out of the CSA May 10, 1865, he was in Washington, Wilkes Co. GA.This resulted in severed ties to the KY kin because he remained in GA until his death.
On a tax list in the Archives of KY, I found a James A. Acton.The A could be for Aaron.Does anyone know about this James A. Acton?Any help would be appreciated.
