Seeking any leads regarding our William R. Abner who married 18 Jul 1872 in Parke Co., IN to Caroline Low.William disappeared before their child Benjamin Franklin Abner was born 27 Jan 1873. Family tradition holds that Will Abner's father was supposedly a wealthy lumberman, and that Will had come to Parke Co. on a timber-buying trip. After Caroline became pregnant Will and Caroline married and lived in with her folks.One day Will left for town with the wagon and a large amount of money with which he was going to purchase furniture for them to set up housekeeping on their own.William R. Abner was never heard of again.The family never knew if he absconded with the money or was robbed and killed.(Given the scenario, the former seems more likely.)In Oct 1874 Caroline divorced Will, dead or alive, so that she would be free to remarry.Around 1910 Caroline was traveling by train through Kansas and saw a man she believed was Will Abner.She had no contact with him, but nearly fainted from the shock. Are there any William R. Abners out there that fit this time frame?Given this strange tale, that name could be an alias. Any help greatly appreciated!
