I do not have my information at work with me so can't say for positive but it does sound like we are speaking of the same person. If you would like you can email me directly at email@example.com and we can compare genealogy lines on this family. I am the ggggreat-grandaughter of Mary Abshire and Pleasant Bales. I
Mary "Polly" ABSHIRE was my 4th Great-Grandmother I only have a estimate on her date of birth in my records as being about 1814 in Randolph County Indiana and I do have a date of death as December 31 1864 in Randolph Co. Indiana, she was married to Pleasant Comfort Bales on April 1 1830. Her children were Pleasant (my 3rd great-grandfather), Issac N., Curtis E., James A., James B., Abner, Infant, and Hannah. Her father was possibly Isaac Abshire but this may have been her uncle not her father. He lived a couple houses down from her and Pleasant in the 1880 census at age 66 with wife Sarah and son Albert and step children Jane Shirm age 9 and William Shirm age 8. This is the only information I have on this family at this time.
