I am Joe (Joseph) Acton's greatgranddaughter and am hoping to correspond with others researching this line.

The Joe Acton I am related to was a champion wrestler in the 1880s. He wrestled in Dublin, London, Vermont, Chicago, and Philadelphia. I know that he lived in Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Portland, OR. According to his death certificate, he was born in England (probably somewhere in Lancashire) to Robert Acton and Elizabeth Rigby on March 8, 1852. He died June 26, 1917 in Portland, Oregon. He was married to Elizabeth, children being: Helen, Elizabeth (my grandmother), Jessie, Robert, and Marion.

I do not have information at this point about any of Joe's siblings but perhaps together we can connect them.
