John ABSHER born abt 1830, son of John ABSHER & Margaret BLANCET.Shows up in 1860 census living in Wythe County, with wife Nancy and 4 children. In the 1870 census, he's living with family in Bland County, VA with wife Nancy and 5 or 6 children + a woman who may be a daughter-in-law + a younger male who may be a grandson.
By 1880, he's left Bland County and may possibly living in Tazewell County VA (I havent checked the census yet).His son James ABSHER got married in 1875 in Mercer County WV (close to Tazewell & Bland counties) and lists his place of residence as Tazewell County VA.Bride's name was Sarah J. COFER, born in Ohio.
Does anyone recognize these ABSHERs?Are they related to the other ABSHERs in Tazewell county?
John ABSHER born abt 1830 was a brother to my 3-great grandmother Phoebe ABSHER (who married Jackson AKER and lived in Wythe County).
