Great! Finally another Acton researcher.There's hardly anyone looking into this family.
In my are of Southern Maryland there used to be tons of Acton's in the 1700s and 1800s.But today there's next to none.
My Acton family line starts and basically stops with my gggrandmother Suzannah Catherine Acton born in 1836.All I have of her family is her mother Christianna, born abt. 1821 and two brothers the older unknown, the younger Richard. There were another set of Acton's that lived in the same area that I'm sure must have been related a William Acton family, who had who I think is a mutual grandmother Catherine living with them.
Suzannah married James Fairfax Willett who was born in 1833.I don't have any more lineage on this side of the family as well.
Who and where do your relatives come from?What counties in Maryland are you researching your Acton family?
