I am Walter Lacy Abington. Everyone in my family were born in Kansas City, MO. My sister is Susan Edith Abington My brother is Richard William Abington, Jr. My father is Richard William Abington, Sr., who was one of nine children born to Donald Lacy Abington. Other sons and daughters were Walker, Carter, Donald, John 'Stanley', Mary, Jewell, Roger, and Doris(?).Of these children only Richard and Roger still live. My grandfather was Donald Lacy Abington. My grandmother was Agnes Jewell Walker who passed away the year I was born, 1956.I knew Grandfather's second wife, Ada.
I have also been trying to research the Abington's history, it seems clouded in some places.I have an interest in learning where the American Indian blood line came from in our family.I am told Agnes used to tease Don about the 'Black Dutch' side of the family, which in those days (prior to 1960s) meant mixed Cherokee blood.The almond shaped eyes prevalent in most Abingtons was a result of this blood line.I would like to know of any information you may have about our ancestors.
