Charlen thank you! That is the right Abshire's. That is my family...Thank you for the information. All of this is new and I am learning as I go along here. But you have provided me with a huge chunk of information to work with. Laura Bell, married one of the Abshire's early on I believe.I have heard stories about the Bell family of Addams Tennesse regarding the "Bell witch Stories" There is a book on it also. Would you know how I can dig deeper further back? I would like to know who Mary Abshire's parents were? Josiah Abshire's parents etc...Trying to find where we originated from.I can't express enough, how greatful I am for your help!!! Thank you, Cynthia Abshire,a.k.a.Sandy Leschuk.
