I am very interested in the military history of the United States and I am digging for information on my Abney ancestors who may have fought in the Civil War and on what side.If you can help, please post a reply.Revolution and War of 1812 info would also be welcomed.
My Great Great Grandmother was Elizabeth Jane Abney, born 05 Feb 1836 in Illinois. She was the daughter of Joshua Abney and Sally (Sara) Stone. Joshua was born in Tennessee in 1812.Elizabeth married my GG Grandfather William Marion Glenn.
This line of Abneys are directly descended from Dannett Abney who came to the British Colonies about 1679 and married Mary Lee.
Judging by the location of the Abney’s in the Dannett line by the 1860’s my guess is we had family on both sides of the Civil War.
