KarenMy family is centered in Tuscaloosa, AL. Henry Jennings Abston is the first ancestor I have knowledge of - b. Aug. 24, 1846, d. Oct. 16, 1900. Married Nancy Isabella Barringer. They had 7 children including my grandfather, Ira Arther ("Ott") Abston. Since you mention you have Alabama Abstons back to at least 1834, I was wondering if you have any connection with "my" Abstons. Any help would be appreciated.
