Looking for descendents of Jacob and Charles Abdon: Charles was the first son born to William and Frances in June 1830 in Dearborn.He married Rebecca Hill, daughter of John and Elizabeth Daniel Hill in 1853 and had three children:Harriet known as Hattie 1854-1922 (Sanders), Mary Elizabeth ca.1855 (Cole)and William Thomas in 1858-after 1920 (Shuter).There were apx. 14 grandchildren.Charles died after 1900 in Dearborn and may be buried with his second wife, Catherine Finley, with whom he had two daughters, Louella Abdon Manlief Deuchars and Clara Abdon Parks.
Jacob was born January 1832, the second and last child of William and Frances.He first married America/Mary Small ca. 1847 and had Oliver,Sarah and Margaret.His second wife was Jemima Elder 1866 and they had Taylor, Jemie, Emmert and Gertrude.He had no children by a third marriage to Sarah.There were at least 8 grand/great grand children.
William Abdon died ca. 1833 in New Orleans and Frances remarried George Bratton Powell.
I have lots of material on the Abdons and Powells and will be glad to share.I would like to find someone who has data on William Abdon and/or can connect to the other Abdons in Dearborn and surrounding counties.Interested in anything you may have on this family...thanks.
