About Our Family Research
My research started about 15 years ago. I was never intrested in Genealogy until my mother and father died and I found out I did'nt know any of my family outside my two brothers.I started looking into records at the courthouse and anywhere I could find the Abney name.I now have my line back about 10 generations.I am trying to go back to at least 1400 or more. The Georgia and Alabama Abneys need to get a reunion going. My great granddad come to Alabama in abt 1857 from Georgia. He was Benjamin D. Abney and his wife was Sarah Greene with a son named George W. Abney who was 4 on the 1860 cences,listed as born in Georgia.in Jackson Co.,Mary Ann was 3 and born in Alabama,as was James A.at2 and William Henry was1.Benjamins 1st wife died in about 1861.He married Mary(Molley)Prisket on Sept.16,1862 at Bens house.In the 1870 cences David was 8,John was 4,Mollie was 3 and Parthena 2,in 1880 Mandy E.9, D.was 7,Albert (Luke) 1mo.
