Welcome to Acton ...
Although we found mention of Acton during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Acton was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Acton was located in Richland County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Acton to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Acton - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Acton, please Contact Us.
