Abner Hanks I was an ancestor of mine by marriage through my great-grandfather Guy Wimer (his 2nd wife Iona Hanks,
to be specific). Abner was married six times and had a total of 21 children; I am related through his third wife, Frances McEndre. He was a Revolutionary War veteran.

Abner I was born in North Farnham, VA in 1763 and died in Nineveh, Johnson County, IN, in 1846, although he lived in Henry County, IN, for a time before moving to the latter place.

An interesting footnote: The actor Tom Hanks is related to us through Abner I's first wife, Mary Dale.
