Harriet - Thank you so much for replying to my post. It's been quite a while since I posted - I had forgotten I had. I recieved an e-mail just this morning from a Margaret Abbe Brooks... I'm thinking that you two are connected (???) I e-mailed her back with my telephone number if she wished to contact me. My father's name is Richard Donald Abbe. His mother was Ellen MaQueen Ashbridge. From what I understand, Walter Abbe III and Ellen were married for an extremely brief period of time (3 months????) and my father never knew HIS father. I don't know very much as I am still getting to know my own father (LONG story). I actually just found him 2 1/2 years ago by doing genealogical research on his mother. The things we can learn, huh? Please feel free to contact me. I have updated my e-mail address so you can reply to a more recent one if you wish. I'm looking forward to hearing from you!!
