Hi, I just found this by doing a search on my name in google.com.I guess I am really one in a million since someone has my name too!!!! How many Kevin Abbeys can there be?????? As for what the last person noted::
SOURCE: MADISON COUNTY, MO. SPECIAL ENUMERATION 1890 CENSUS UNION VETERANS Abbey, Edward T., 2 IL Lt. Art
SOURCE: Washington County, MO. 1890 Special Enumeration Union Veteran's Census Daniel Abbey, Sol US (Note: This is the Daniel listed below, who married Elizabeth Manning.
I was told that my great great uncle or grandfather was in the uninon army in the 19th century but not much more than that.I was told he battled on the frontier with the indians but never learned anything else.I am not sure I will ever know but would like too.
As for the name Abbey.I believe it is Irish or Scottish.Where did ou ever get the idea it was German.I don't think any germany ever had the name abbey for a family name.Perhaps a first name.
