Dear Billy Joe, Yes, I believe we are talking about the same Leann Abston. Silas was her brother and they were John Henry's children by his first wife Mary. I don't have any more information beyond that for Leann and Silas. John Henry Abston was my great grandfather and Fred was my grandfather, born to John Henry and Kathryn Ledbetter Abston. If I find more information I will let you know.
I heard from a woman (Shirley Louise Abston) the other day who is the grandaughter of Gather Abston, another of John Henry and Kathryn's children. Perhaps she has some information. She posted a note on October 13, 2001. I answered her note and heard from her by email.
Yes, I would love to have the photo by email. My email address firstname.lastname@example.orgThanks so much, Shirley Jeanne Abston Riedel
