Thank you so very much for the information on the William and James Abercrombie families and for your kindness.
Some of the Abercrombie marriages took place in Tallapoosa County, AL.I was given the marriage dates of:
Emily Abercrombie marrying a Thomas A. Crafford, 19, Feb. 1863, Thomas Clack, bondsman; J.S. Holmes, M.G. Mariage Book 5, page 264, at the Tallapoosa County Courthouse in Dadeville, AL.
Note:Emily (Abercrombie) Crawford married David C. Stratton in Muscogee County, GA.,Feb 26, 1865.
Note:I think that Emily had been living in AL, prior to going to GA for this marriage.She was listed in her Dad's home on the 1850 and 1860 Census of Chambers Co., AL. For some reason once Emily and David Stratton started their married life in Tallapoosa Co, AL, she called herself Sarah instead of Emily while in AL.Once they got to TX in 1880 and 1900 she went back to using her name Emily.The only reason I know it was the same family is that her sister Caroline, "Carrie"although using the name Abercrombie in the 1870 Census of Tallapoosa Co, AL., seemed to live with the Stratton family most of the time.Evidently she married a man by the name of Wilson, who died,as she called herself Carrie Wilson, widow,in 1880 Bastrop Co., and in 1900 Milam Co., also, TX.Also I was familar with the Stratton children's names as they are our people.
James Abercrombie and Martha J. Swigler, 15 July 1869, David C. Stratton, bondsman; E. M. Smith, J.P. Marriage Book 7, page 234,, at the Tallapoosa County Courthouse in Dadeville, AL.
Note:Martha Swigler was a widow and had a 12 yr old daughter when she married James Abercrombie and this was the Sr. , born abt 1808 in SC 2nd marriage.Martha's maiden name was Martha J. Herrin.James Abercrombie and Martha had several children, Charlie Frank Abercrombie, born 1874 in AL, and Mattie Abercrombie (date of birth unknown) married a man by the name of Hammock..So far as I know James and Martha continued to live in Chambers County, AL.
Mary Abercrombie and Elias Watts, 27 Sept 1866; Jarrus Walden, bondsman; Srickland Soloman, J.P. Marrige Book 6, page 467, at the Tallapoosa County Courthouse in Dadeville, AL.
Note:I do not know if this Mary was a daughter of James A. Abercrombie and wife Sarah (Thompson?) or not.They did have a dau Mary born abt 1837 in Fayette Co., GA.
There is a marriage in Chambers Co., AL for Thomas J. Abercrombie and Mary E. Lett, 7 Jan 1860; by Humphrey Gilmore, M. G. at the home of the brides father.Marriage Book 5, page 581, at the Chambers Co. Courthouse in Lafayette, AL.
Note:Evidently Thomas and Mary Lett parted ways as she seems to live with her dad and brother after the Civil War, and Thomas using his middle name of Joseph Abercrombie, has moved to Marion Co, AL., and appears to have a wife Martha _______, with a couple of children.The son James Abercrombie that married Lucretia Hughey may have also moved to Marion County.Somewhere I read that 3 of the Abercrombie children had moved to Marion Co.In the 1860 Census of Chambers Co., in the home of James A. Abercrombie, the Senior, lives a William Hughey, age 18, male farm laborer, born in GA.
Now if I may ask you another question or two, do you have any idea when James A. Abercrombie, born abt 1808 died? In another place I read that Sarah Thompson, James Abercrombie's wife, born abt 1810, had a mother that had been an Abercrombie.They said she was the daughter of Thomas Thompson and Mary Abercrombie.Would you know which Abercrombie her mother was the dau of?
Again, thank you so verrrry much for your consideration.
