I’m trying to help a lady who descends from Susanna Acton, b. c1813 Charles county, MD. I’ve read all of your posts on Genforum & Ancestry.com, and it appears that no one can shed any light on her ancestors. Since she was in the 1840 censusas a widow with 2 young children, I’m wondering if anyone has checked the various records in the Family History Center in Salt Lake City ?They are as follows :
Abstracts form the Port Tobacco Times and Charles Advertiser - 1844-1898 (this is also on CD Rom from Heritage Books).
Maryland Orphans Court (Charles County) - 1825-33 film # 13723 , 1834-51 film # 13724
Abstracts of Wills, Charles County, 1808-1846 , film # 13706
