Just a little note...I went to Nashville Tn. Archives and did some searching. John ( Johnnie) Abner was born June 16, 1898 passed away Dec. 1973 he was married to Mollie Sammons they had 12 children, and was thought to be married when Mollie was 14!?? I found out that Johns Fathers name was Samuel Abner born :June 9,1870 in Ky. Johns mother at this time is still unknown. Samuel Abner's fathers name was Wiliam Abner from KY and Mothers name was Rose from KY but her maiden name is unknown at this time. If anyone should have any information on William and Rose and possibly Johns mothers name i would deeply appreciate it..these are my great g-parents.
