I am just wondering if J. Vance (Jeffery) Absher is still around and still reading this forum.
He is a descendant of John Rumsey Absher and says that his ancestor, Mary Absher, was also the ancestor of Lytle Absher, and that Mary was never married. The father of Lytle Absher was Mitchel Smith, according to a court document in Allen County, Kentucky.
I am just wondering if Jeffery knows all the children of Mary Absher, and if one of them was Berryman Absher, or Mary Jane Absher.
Mary Jane Absher who married John Travelstead in 1849 was my ancestor. I think she was the daughter of Berryman Absher. Mary Jane and John named a son Jasper Berryman Absher.
