  • I searched the marriage records from 1901 – 1945 for a Finney=Acheson marriage but without success.  Without some additional information it’s hard to suggest how to identify this family.

    If you can obtain your aunt or your cousins’ birth or marriage certificates, that may gives some names and occupations to try and identify the family.  When (roughly) were the 4 children born, as that should help narrow the search a little?

  • My grandmother died in 1970 she got married to my grandfather in 1916 after coming to teach in local Methodist school house around 1912 we are guessing she was born around 1898 but am not sure where she came in the family
