July 9 1999 (postmark)
Letter from Joan Marks, 110 South Eli, Salmon, ID 83467 

Dear LD

Here is a copy of the letter written by the daughter of John and Fannie Cavender Abercrombie that I mentioned. She was the sister of Nancy Abercrombie Pierce and their brother William was my father's Grandfather.

I am also sending you the newspaper clipping of an obituary for Clem Pierce, a son of Nancy Abercrombie, and Andrew Jackson Pierce, Which I discovered in a few items from my father. Your lineage posted on Genforum cleared up the mystery for me. I knew he had to be a relative but no idea what the connection was. The trips to the "mountains of Colorado" would have been to his cousin JJJ Abercrombie's place, who lived in Trinidad, Colorado. JJJ (john Joseph Jarrett) was a son of William Wiley Abercrombie, Nancy Abercrombie Pierce's Brother. My father Calvin Abercrombie,, a son of JJJ, and we also lived in Trinidad when I was a child before moving to Seattle, WA. Unfortunately I found this clipping after my dad died, so had no conversation about it. Also, unfortunately, the obituary writer did not include any family names, locations, ect. It must have been from his local Johnson County TX newspaper? Thought you might like the original clipping as you are a more of a direct descendant. (perhaps someone in your family may have another one somewhere) and I kept a copy.

Would like to keep in touch--"cousin"

Joan Marks July 6 1999


JJJ Abercrombie was the son of William Wiley Abercrombie B. 1830, who was a brother of Fannie the writer, Nancy (married AJ Pierce), and Charles Abercrombie (plus other sibilings) Their parents were John and Fannie (Cavender) Abercrombie. John and his brother Young (David) plus other siblings, wre children of James (b. ca 1765) and Mary Ann Williams Abercrombie.


Letter from Fannie James Abercrombie to JJJ Abercrombie of Pueblo Colorado

Wahoo Ga Jane 13 1897

Mr JJJ Abercrombie

Dear nephew your letter bearing date of the ____ is at hand. I am the daughter of John Abercrombie. I have no record of the place of birth of father and mother. I can give the date of birth and date of death and place of death. John Abercrombie was born Dec 22 1791 and died Jan 22 1864 in Lumpkin CO, GA. Fanie Cavender the wife of John Abercrombie was born May 16 1797 and died Oct 19 1857 in Lumpkin CO GA. I have no record of James Abercrombie's Birth or death date but died here in GA. Their grave is 3 miles north of where I live. I have been told his wife's name was Nancy ____? (prob. Cavender)
I have always been told by some of the Older ones that the Abercrombie came from Scotland. Charles Abercrombie got a letter from Uncle Young Abercrombie some years ago. He wrote his understanding that there were 3 brothers of Abercrombies that came over on the Mayflower. It landed at Plymouth Rock, and their names are on record there. Now John I have forgotten your name, only John ( I remember that part). Write me again tell me of your folks. I do not know their address. I reckon that have all forgot. Write me again tell me what you are aiming at, if I can find out anything more I will tell you when I hear from you again. 
Excuse bad spelling and writing�..

Yours Truly,

Fannie James

Wahoo, GA
note: the letter from Joan was typed with grammar and spelling from the original document. I have taken the liberty to update and correct the letter to current usage.

 Clementh Abercrombie Biography

New July 1999

Newspaper article and photograph published in the "Beloit Times" Beloit KS, Aug 21, 1902. Obtained from Mr. Homer T Abercrombie (Great Grandson) 27069 Belvedere Court, Hayward CA 1-16-65. Typed copy sent to me by Patricia Lay. Salmon Idaho

This excellent photograph of Uncle Clem Abercrombie and his great-great grand child, Baby Jones, now ten months old, represents five generations now living. Mr. Abercrombie is a resident of Mitchell County, near Saltville, KS, to which place he moved from the state of GA, about thirty years ago. He has been an industrious farmer, and has amassed considerable property and is comfortably situated on his old homestead near Saltville. He is still active and his face is as ruddy as many a man at fifty. The family tree represented by the picture is as follows: Clemeth Abercrombie Born July 22, 1822, was married to miss Emaline Jones March 4 1841. Their son was William A Abercrombie who was born April 16, 1846; and was married to Miss Elizabeth Brookshire in 1863. Miss Emaline Abercrombie, their daughter was born 1865, and married at 18 to Joseph Shipley. Their daughter, Etta Shipley, was married to W.C. Jones at age of 18, from which union comes, Baby Jones, now ten months old. Uncle Clem, As he is known to all his neighbors, came from a prolific and long lived family. He being one of 13 brothers and sisters. He is the father of 12 children, six boys and six girls. He has 39 grand children, and 38 great great-grandchildren. His wife has been dead several years and sleeps on the hillside at Saltville by whose ride the husband and father expects to rest by and by awaiting the morning of the resurrection in hope of eternal life.

Clemeth Abercrombie was born in the Capt. Abercrombie Militia District, Hall County GA. (1, 16) on July 28, 1822 (2) TO John and Fannie Cavender Abercrombie. (3,4,5). He is one of thirteen brothers and sisters (6) listed as follows:

  1. (~abt 1866) Md. Catherine Peck (3,10,11)
  2. James ( ) Md. Sarah Step Dec 5 1839 (3,10)

    ( Possibly one daughter married J H Glaze, another married John F Roberts)

During the 1840's he purchased four 160 acre agricultural lots in the wild mountainous Penitentiary Cove area surrounding the fertile valleys of Montgomery Creek, in the No. 935 Davis Militia District of Hall County GA, near the Two Run Post Office, which became the Jones Creek District and the No. 1252 Hightower Dist. of Lumpkin County in 1871. The area later became part of the Chattahoochee National Forest and is known as a fisherman's paradise. (11)

He was active in civic affairs, (11) served jury duty in the 1836-1837 and built, Lumpkin County Courthouse, Dahlonega, GA, in 1869 (18) with brothers William and Andrew J, sons William Wiley and John H, and relative John. During the Civil War, at age 41 years six months (Jan 1864) He served as a sub-caroling officer and was exempted from Military service for serving in that capacity. (19)

With the Death of his father John Abercrombie in Dec 1863/jan 1864, Clemeth inherited Approximately $1384, all of which became worthless upon the defeat of the Confederacy plus nominal amounts, in 1865, and later years as his fair share of the large estate (21)

Clemeth's mother, the former Fannie Cavender, the daughter of Cementh Cavender (1774-1836) (5,22) Also of Hall County GA (11) had at least one sister Nancy (1823-1912), (5) who married John Barnes (1824-1864) Clemeth apparently was named after his maternal grandfather Cemeth Cavender, as no previous Clemeths can be found in earlier Abercrombie family history.

Between March 5 1869 and Oct 24 1872, Clemeth and Emeline with children William Wiley and family, Joseph martin and wife, Permelia Arveline, Nancy E Jones P. I, Young B., Amanda and Mary Susie; (26) and friends Simons, Pratt's, Gads, and other (27) left Georgia traveled westward, and settled in the new state of Kansas. The Abercrombies homesteaded several parcels of land approximately 14 miles south of Williy Springs (now Beloit) and nine miles northwest of Barnard, in Mitchell County KS. In later years they were joined by sons John H (8,14,25,260 and Andrew J (26) and their respective families. One of the original homesteads, now beside state highway 14, was in later years owned by Mr. Frank Wright, and Mr. Joe Weber. (27) The community of Saltville was established in the same general area near fifth Creek, with the Abercrombie gentleman owning several of the stores, active in local government, and becoming progressive farmers on the rolling plains abundant with buffalo and infested with marauding bands of savage Indians.
(2, 29)

Clementh's wife, Emaline Jones, was born Nov 17 1824 (2) in GA. (26). They were married in Hall County GA on March 4 1841. (6,29) She later was a member of the Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Lumpkin County, GA (29). She died at Saltville, Mitchell County KS, on Aug 25 1899, in her 74th year of life.

Clementh, with ruddy complexion, gray hair, and beard, was well liked by his neighbors and friends of Saltville and was know to all as "Uncle Clem". He was an industrious man who amassed considerable property during the 35 plus years of Kansas pioneer farming. (6)

On Nov 17 1907, Clemeth died at the age of 85, and was laid to rest in the Saltville Presbyterian Cemetery beside his wife Emaline. (2) Eleven children (29) of the original 12 children (6) as listed below survived to mourn his death;
