I just came across some of the messages you had posted to the Abston GenForum.One of them says you are descended from John Absten brother of Francis.There are a couple of sets of John and Francis brothers.One set had a sister.I am descended from their sister Susan Thomas Absten.She had married Lambert Myers Carder.
Have you ever been able to get any further back?Or any other info on the family?I would love to share.Here is some of what I have.I haven't done sources on some of them.
One of your messages says you still live in Mason Co.I'm curious what part, or near where?I was raised there, left, but spent summers there with relatives.I feel like it is home.
Any info you have would be appreciated.
