Hi Casey.I have Abshiers on my family tree.My GG Grandfather, Alford Washington Abshier was born Dec.12,1844 in Independence Co.,Kansas to John & Jane Abshier.(Jane was from France) Alford married Mary Ann McDowell 1862 in Flat River,Missouri. They also lived in Illinois,Texas & New Mexico. Does any of this sound familiar? Where are your Abshiers from? Looking froward to hearing from you.
