Recent discovery of my grandmother's first marriage certificate and application lists her father as John Abercrombie and her mother Mable Cox. Further search shows that this John Abercrombie was the son of Young Bartow Abercrombie and Mary Elizabeth Blackwell. Continued line is: Young Abercrombie m. Isabell Johnson, John Abercrombie m. Fannie Cavender, James Abercrombie m. Mary Ann Williams.
Anyone familiar with this family line, please contact me. Would like to confirm via resources of my grandmother Edna/Edwina Pauline Abercrombie's connection to this Abercrombie family line. So far, have word of mouth stories from the daughter of Marion Talmadge Abercrombie (brother of John) and connected cousins that they recall John Abercrombie's first wife's name as "Josie". He later remarried a woman named Emma. Rumor was that John's first wife left with their daughter to Texas(?) and on to Walla Walla, Washington. Census records shows a Josie (Cox) Abercrombie married a man named Hartman in this area with small child residing. Are Josie and Mable the same person? My grandmother listed Walla Walla, Washington as her place of residence at time of marriage application. Too coincidental to ignore fact that John's first wife may have been Josie/Mable Cox. Any Abercrombie people, please help us to solve our grandmother's Abercrombie family line mystery. Thanks so much.
