Rev. Findley Acheson was born in Muskingum County, OH, in 1835. His parents were Humphrey Acheson and Elizabeth Hunter. Humphrey was the son of John Acheson and Sarah Ramsey, and grandson of Humphrey Acheson and Rebecca Reed.
Findley Acheson's name implies that he had Findley ancestors (probably through his mother), and there was a prominent Findley family living in Muskingum County at the time. Does anyone know the connection?
My great-great-grandfather John Acheson (not the same one mentioned above) was a second cousin of Findley Acheson. He married Martha Findley, who was also born in Muskingum County. Martha was the daughter of Abel Findley and granddaughter of David Findley, who immigrated from Northern Ireland as a young child.
