Mother: Nancy Jeans
Birth: c1835, Georgia
Birth Source: 1850 and 1860 Census
Death: before 1870, probably Randolph or Clay County, Alabama
Death Source: No records after 1860 census and daughter is living in the home of Loftin Reeves in 1870 census.
Spouse1: Newton Abner, m. c1856
- Arminda E. Abner, b. c1857-1858
Loftin Reeves' household, Armenda Abner. The 1860 census of Randolph County lists the same child as the daughter of Newton and Nancy C. Abner, age 24, who were living in the next household between Loftin and his son Burgess. Nancy Abner is surely Loftin's daughter Nancy C. Reeves and the child Armenda is his granddaughter whose parents are presumably deceased. Probate documents from Loftin Reeves' estate file list Armenda as one of his children which may indicate that he adopted her after the death of her parents. The belief that Armenda's surname was Abner, rather than Reeves is further confirmed by Clay County, Alabama marriage records which list her name as Arminta Abner when she married J.D.T. Johnson on 12 Dec 1876.
