I found out that a lot can be learned about an ancestor by finding information about their children or even grandchildren. Abner Fish is one of my gggg-grandparents. One day while googling I typed in a combination of terms. I forget what all. I found Abner's grandson's biography
from a county in South Dakota. In it were several sentences about his grandfather Abner. Among other things it stated that Abner had not died in Iowa as always thought but in Chicago where he was living with a son. Abner's daughter Buelah, my ggg-grandmother, had a son from a second marriage. His name was Watson Knight. In a short booklet about growing up he wrote several items about Abner Fish. The picture shows one of Watson's recollections about Abner.
