I am researching David L. ABDILL (b DEC 1835 KY), son of Isaac F. ABDILL (b ca 1805 DE) and Marie (MNU) (b ca 1811 NJ.David was a dentist.He had at least three children:
1. James Franklin ABDILL (b 12 JAN 1862 in Henderson Co.,IL - d 31 DEC 1948 in Abingdon, Knox Co., IL)I have a copy of his bio from the History of Knox Co.His mother was Sarah M. FRYREAR and she apparently died the day after he was born.
With 2nd wife Minerva C. McKINNEY LEATHERWOOD: 2. Cora L. ABDILL (b ca 1865 in Ohio)
3. Wade Hampton ABDILL (b abt 1871 in IN - d 22 OCT 1948 in Mt Carmel, Wasbash Co., IL
Mineva had at least two children from a previous marriage to Spencer LEATHERWOOD:Janet and Travis.Janet adopted her stepfather's surname and married Henry Payne HARRIS JR in Champaign Co., IL, on 06 JAN 1892.
David ABDILL married a third time to Emma Matilda SHULTS in Hood Co., Texas, on 26 SEP 1888.They settled in Ft. Worth, Texas.I do not believe they had any children together.
Do your ABDILLs in Illinois connect with any of these folks?If so, I would love to hear from you.Please feel free to email me directly.I am just beginning my research, so don't have much, but will gladly share what I have.
