Thanks so much for the info. I clicked on your name to email you back but it only gave me a list of messages you have posted, so I'll try it this way.
My husband's grandmother was Lyda Jane McGuire who married Harold Lee Kittle. Lyda was the daughter of William McGuire and Hannah Matilda Abdon. Hannah was the daughter of Thomas Abdon and Lydia Moody but that's as far as I have gotten.
Do you have Hannah Abdon? There are two ways I have learned her father's name was Thomas, through a family "history" handed down from Harold Kittle (hubby's grandfather), and a family heirloom (highchair) made for Harold's wife, Lyda McGuire Kittle, made by her grandfather, Thomas Abdon (says on the bottom of the chair.
Looking forward to hearing more,
