Re: Martha Acton married Jesse Wharton
Could this Martha Acton have been born around 1893? Could her parents have been Susan & William? Would they by any chance traveled to Essex or Colchester England and then returned or even stayed over there?I am trying to locate a Martha Acton with siblings: Osmond, Karel, Elrad, & Elnah.The family is found in the 1901 census in Essex, Colchester.William was a priest of the New Church or Colchester.I am descendant through Karel -- is actually Stephen Karel Acton.He had always told the family that his birth records were destoyed in the Chicago fire.I am not sure where exactly he was born however the 1901 census shows him as born in the US. Any information on Martha would be greatly appreciated.I am loking for a needle in a haystack here as Karel was my biological grandfather on my mothers side and I was raised by an Aunt on my father's side of the family.Karel has passed away and his daughter.. my biological mother Betty is up in her years and does not recall much of the family history.Surely the names Elnah, Elrad, Osmond and Karel are not common names in the Acton line.I do know that Karel at least entered the United States though New York on The Celtic in 1920 with his wife Phoebe and her sister Barbara Baxter and mother Fanny Baxter as I have the documents to prove it.Phoebe's family was all from the Dartford, Kent area.
