I believe I am descended from the following named William A. Abington and his wife Susan Kirkpatrick.Their daughter Eliza Abington married James Robert "J.R." Gass.They are my maternal great-grand parents.The Abington birthdates are from tombstones listed.All I have ever found was the 1860 census, the western Missouri tombstones and a couple of entries in the world file at Salt Lake City.WILLIAM A.1 ABINGTON was born April 26, 1822 in Virginia, and died December 21, 1876 in Windsor, MO.He married SUSAN G. KIRKPATRICK October 22, 1845 in St Charles, MO.She was born October 20, 1828 in Missouri, and died February 27, 1909 in Windsor, MO.
Notes for WILLIAM A. ABINGTON:
Historical article from St Charles Journal reports William M. Allen took a partner, W. A. Abington and established the first general store in Wentzville. (year not stated, seems to be about 1855.)
There is an old Abington Cemetary 1/2 mile east of Meridina Road in Calloway township. Possible resting place of William Abington's parents.
Laurel Oak Cemetery, Windsor, Missouri, is the resting place of William A. Abington, Susan Kirkpatrick Abington and three of their children: Joseph F., James H., and Lida T.This cemetary lies at the south east border of Windsor, at the end of Smith Street on Highway TT.
(Over two years of research, including that of a professional genealogist, have found no record of the Abingtons in Missouri, except for that contained on this page and the memory of Glady Robertson Garis and Hazel Robertson Achelpohl.)
