Hello - are you still searching for info on her? Which of their children is your ancestor? I'm a descendant of Abner's brother, Joel, and am just beginning the research. A lot of it was already traced with the DAR for the Scribner Days reunion back in 1990 (1989?) when we were all there. Anyway, While looking at Joel's line, I'm definitely looking into his other family members as well. Let's keep in touch as I'm sure we can help each other out. In a few weeks, I'll be getting a box of Scribner family documents - some originals (Very cool!) as my mom currently has them.

In the meantime, the Public Library in New Albany, IN, supposedly has a lot of info there on the Scribner family. I checked online, but apparently you have to access it on site.

Thanks and take care! Heather

P.S. My Mom was a Scribner - last generation of Scribners, I guess, to be born and raised in New Albany, IN. HMB
