Charity Abney

The parentage of the wife married to Absolom Dean (1799) is a subject of a great amount of research and speculation. The most plausible theory is that her father was Walter Abney, due to the multiple mentions of her (as "Elizabeth Dean") and Absalom Dean in the wills of the brothers (John, Simeon and Mastin)[1] This article assumes the theory is correct. With mtDNA testing, the circumstantial evidence pointing to parentage of Susan Brooks will be proven or disproven.
