Re: William son of Abner/Absolem of Meriwether Co, Ga b. 1835
If this is the same one, the problem may be in the last name spelling. I traced my family (Acrey) back and hit a wall at Abner (Absolem) Donald Acrey Sr. Then I discovered that Abner apparently changed the spelling of his last name FROM ACREE to ACREY -
His Son: William James Acrey b. abt 1835 in GA, married Elizabeth in 1829 in GA& d. Sep 1899 in Nacogdoches, Tx.
So far, I found one child for them, a son: William A "Bill" Acrey b.14 Mar 1854 in Nacogdoches Co., TX and who's wife was Nellie Lightner b. abt 1854 in GA,and who's daughter was Willie Viola Acrey b.18 May 1892 in Hospital, Houston, Harris, Tx. d. 27 Oct 1957 same place.
She married Matthew Madison Birdwell on 8 Oct 1912 in Nacogdoches Co., TX.
Is this the same one you are looking for?
