Rebecca was my 2nd great grandmother.  I wrote about her husband, William Warren McAboy - he was my Black Sheep ancestor.  Their youngest child, Mabel McAboy Fitzgerald, was my great grandmother.

Rebecca was the daughter of my favorite subject, Emery Waller.  Her mother, Rebecca Parker Waller, died 6 days after Rebecca Waller McAboy's birth. 

I'm anxious to learn more about Rebecca and hope that at some point I'll run across a photo of her.

  1. Hi Debi! My name is Kris Nagamine. I was thrilled to find your blog and to find out that we are cousins! My maternal great grandmother was Lilly Gay McAboy. My mother, Gay, is named after her. Imagine how excited and fascinated I was while reading all of your wonderful family information! Thank you so much for sharing all of your hard work. I have photos of Lilly Gay and her sister Clara and I will definitely check with my Mom to see if she has more family photos. I am happy to share them with you. I was very moved to read about what you did for Emery Waller. That was so kind of you. I sure hope we are able to connect!
    Take care, and feel free to contact me!
