RE: Wesley W Quaid
Photo is all I have. She had a page of soldiers and sailors from WW2 in a very old album. She wrote letters to them. Don't think there are any letters but I will check again.

Catharine Elliott Nixon
Sir,
I am trying to find information on Eliza 'Jenny Elliott and I would like to know if you have any information on her. She might be a sister of Catharine as they were both married in Madison Co. KY. Eliza married John Huntsman 23 Mar. 1796 and Catharine married Francis Nixon 24 Feb 1798.
I also have a record of John Elliott marrying Polly Glasgow 8 May 1811 also in Madison Co., and Burgess Eliot marrying Sarah Ackin 28 Jun. 1796, might also be family.

Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks,

John

The descendants of James Henry Abney / Abgar / Abner
Hello Ron.

I see that you posted a photo of Luticia Ellen Abney back in 2008. I am looking at her father, James Henry Abney (1838 - 1909)Find A Grave Memorial# 31716818.

I know that Dr. James H. Abney was married to Mary Elizabeth Whitlow 3 July, 1858 and she passed shortly thereafter some time around >1859. I also found records indicting that he may have married my Jane Elizabeth Cline in St. Louis on 30 July 1867. Jane is the reason for my inquiry as she is a direct and a key ancestor of mine.

Jane West married Horatio G. Houghton on 3 Mar, 1857 in Keokuk Iowa after coming to America from Cavan Ireland in 1849.She briefly lived with her mother and my 3X Great Grandfather Richard West until she left for Keokuk Iowa.

After spending the Civil War in Tarrant Texas and losing her husband. Jane returned to St. Louis and married Levi W. Cline 15 October,1865. That didn't last long and was very tumultuous tp say the least.

Jane then married James Henry Abney, Abner Abgar (depending on which record is examined)on
30 July 1867. Jane died possibly giving birth to Sallie Elizabeth in 1872 in Edwardsville Illinos.

Born in County Cavan Ireland in 1834 Jane Elizabeth (West) Abner/Abgar/Abney - Cline - Houghton. died in 1872 in Edwardsville Illinois. She had two children by James H. Abney et al. Jeannie who died as an infant and Sallie Elizabeth Abner born 1872 in Illinois and died 8 Aug,1942 in Arkansas. Find A Grave Memorial# 50656327, Sally married a James David Reese of Howard Arkansas. I believe that these families are all connected via J.H. Abney et al.

I would like to confer and collaborate with any researchers of the Abney Abner Abgar family to confirm my suspicions based on records I've obtained. If you are interested, my email is Cnowotny@msn.com. I suspect that I am on the correct path and would be very interested in clearing away the fog.

Thank you for your time,

Chuck Nowotny (#47232390)

RE: Upshaw
Thanks, Ron,

Yes, I have the newspaper article about John Markham's killing.

I have added your family to my web page at Ancestry. You have left a very good trail to follow here on Find a Grave.

I also sent you a message on Ancestry.

Upshaw
Hello Ron,

I am also a descendant of John Upshaw and Tabitha Lawless. Their daughter, Sarah Elizabeth Upshaw, born 1825, died 1902, Holland, Bell County, Texas, is my great-great grandmother. She married John Bunyon Markham 3 Sep 1843 in Noxubee County, Mississippi. John was murdered by a man in Minden Louisiana in 1856. John was at the man's house when it happened. I do not know where John was buried, but would love to find out. He and Sarah were living near Sparta, Bienville Parish, at the time. Sarah and her small children moved to Bell County Texas in 1867 with her brothers, James Upshaw and T A Upshaw.

John and Sarah's son James Monroe Markham, born 1853, was my great-grandfather.

I would love to know more about your Nixon family. I don't believe I have them in my family tree.
