Dr. Abraham Abney was supposedly my 6th great grandfather.However, the data that I have is curious because I have the birthdate of his son William, my 5th great grandfather, as August 12, 1757, when Abraham was 55 years old!That seems to be quite old for that time.In addition, I only have 1 other sibling for William which I would think is incomplete.Can anyone confirm this information?
My line goes from Pvt. William Abney and Amelia Graves to their daughter Mary Abney who married Wallis J. Clark.Wallis J. Clark was the son of Joseph Clark and Judith (Graves?).Of course, this Judith (Graves?) Clark also married William Abney.This brings up another discussion about Amelia and Judith.Some have thought that they were sisters.However, this is highly unlikely due to the fact that their children married which they would have been 1st cousins.I am descended from this line and so I don't really think that Amelia and Judith were sisters.I'm still trying to find out who Amelia's parents really were.I don't think that it was Rice and Jane Graves; there are no records that I know of that indicate this.
I would like to correspond with anyone connected to this line.
