I am not sure which of the above was father of Elizabeth Abney who md William PATTON.The Pattons and Abneys apparently had a long-standing feud going, sort of like the Montagues and Capulets,in "Romeo and Juliet".The court records of Estill document this pretty well.
One suspects the Abneys of Estill descend from this line although I am not positive that there were no other Abneys here. Polly 1809
