subject: William A Abston, David Allen Abston, David M. Abston, Julius W. Abston
Thanks Todd for the information you posted.
Most of the information I have on the above persons I obtained on Ancestry.com thru the census records and etc.
I am wondering if you have some documation for the information you have shared on the above persons. I would be pleased to receive more information on the above persons.
I am sure David M Abston b ca 1866 is the son of David A Abston for I found him in the house hold of D A (David A) and R A (Rachel A) Abston in the US census, 1870, Baker County, Ala. And again in 1880 census in Coaling station, Tuscaloosa County, Ala.
I am wondering if the Henry Newton Abston you mentioned might be a brother to David M. Abston. There is a Newton Abston listed in the 1880 census b. ca 1871.
I was unable to locate either David A or David M Abston in the 1900 Census. I found David M. Abston and wife Louise O abston and 7 children in the 1910 Census in Red Lick, Johnson County, Arkansas. Again in the 1920 census in Grand, Johnson County, Ark., I found David M Abston and wife and four children. I have been unable to find him in the 1930 census. I found a death record on Ancestry.com for a David M. Abston, death date 30 Nov 1947 in Tuscaloosa, Ala. I don't know for sure this is the same person as we have above.(Alabama Deaths, 1908-59, certificate 227??9, roll 5.
Julius Wallace Abston: He is the step father of a friend of mine. Julius W. Abston is the first born son of David M. Abston (U S Census 1910) b. 26Oct 1895,Blocton, Bibb County, Ala. (World war 1&2 military registeation) Died Jan 1950 in Saint Lucie, Florida.

They had one son, Ralph H Abston, b 5 Nov. 1918 in Bryant, Okmulgee County, OK. Died: 8 March 1966, OK. Julius and Bertha devorced in the early 1920's I think. He remarried to Audria ? b. 21 April 1908-d 26 Sept. 1991, Mc Curtian County, OK
