My mother's great-grandmother was Elizabeth Abshear, born 1819, in Kentucky or North Carolina. She married David B. Berry, moved around a lot while they were married, and died in Missoui. I have the history on Peter Ipsher/Absher/Abshire/Abshear (etc.) who settled in Augusta County Virginia about 1760, and about his three sons that spread out. Christ (Christian, but I think it is sometimes mistaken for Christopher)probably moved to Kentucky. There aren't a ton of Abshears/Absires, so I think Elizabeth probably came from this line. John Absher married Nancy Barnhart of North Carolina, and they moved to Allen County about 1815. I feel like this is a connection, but have nothing to prove it. Can anyone help? Thanks!
