I have indeed found a lot more information. Abner appears to be the son of Hezekiah Doane III. Court records in Kentucky show Abner marrying Jane Andrews and he is listed as "son of Hezekiah". Hezekiah moved to Ky. from North Carolina. His father Hezekiah jr., moved his family from the family holdings at Barnstable, Mass. either prior to the Revolutionary War or just after the outbreak of hostilities. His father, the Deacon Hezekiah Doane was the son of Ephraim Doane who was the son of John Doane over from England in the 1630's.
My father Millard Clay Doane passed away last January. I had a chance to talk to my Uncle Bob and he mentioned Frank. He didn't have much information about him. Doyou have any more? I have a bunch of scanned photos. Would you like me to send them to you and see if you can put any names to them?
