Looking for the family of Mary C. ABINGTON who married William L. MOORE, December 9, 1846 in Fayette County, Tennessee. Mary C. Abington was born December 21, 1831 in Kentucky and her father was William Abington, mother is unknown. She died July 21, 1911 in Hickory Plains, Prairie County, Arkansas. William Abington was born in North Carolina per a biography of William L. Moore in "Biographical & Historical Memoirs of Eastern Arkansas", page 718 by Goodspeed Publishers, 1891.
William and Mary Abington Moore moved to Prairie County, Arkansas sometime between 1850 and 1860. There is a J.B. ABINGTON, possibly a relation, that is also living in Prairie County, Arkansas. I have no further information about him. Other Abington's living in Phillips County, Arkansas, are the following:
H.A. ABINGTON. Born about 1835 (Source: 1880 Cypress, Phillips County, Arkansas, Federal Census) in North Carolina. Both parents were born in North Carolina. Possibly a brother to Mary C. Abington. His wife is listed as "E.A." Abington, born about 1837 in Mississippi. Her parents were both born in North Carolina. They had the following children:
1. Frances or Fannie B. Abington b. About 1845
2. Callie Abington b. About 1861
3. Jennie Abington b. About 1862
There is also a W.T.ABINGTON living in White County, Arkansas. Born about 1845 in Tennessee.
This is all I have on these Abington's. If anyone can give me information on the parentage or ancestors of Mary C. Abington Moore I would be very appreciative.
