General Notes: Husband - Marcus Cunningham Acheson


He was a leader in the legal profession and during his lifetime was engaged in pursuits wherein success depended on the matured judgment and practical concep­tion that comes from experience, observation, read­ing and reflection. He received a liberal education at the common schools of the borough and at Washington College. He read law with his father and was admitted to the bar of Washington County in December, 1869. He was associated with his father in the practice of his profession from January, 1877, to October, 1889. In February, 1891, he received the appointment of administrator to the estate of the late John McKeown, oil operator, and gave bonds to the enor­mous amount of $3,000,000, being the largest bond ever given in the county.

He was a close observer of men and things, and his naturally quick and keen perceptive faculties he improved and re-en­forced by extensive travel in America as well as in the mother land, having made three trips across the Atlantic. He was a man of fine physique, genial in his manner, and enjoyed robust health.
