Notes on Abednego Kiser

Abednego was a Baptist Minister. In 1840, they moved to the mouth of Priest Fork of Frying Pan Creek, where her father had given her a tract of virgin mountain land, and built a two story log cabin. A few years later, they moved to Toms Hill, near Sandlick. In the 1850s they moved to "New Kentuck," near the head of Middle Fork of the Pocatalico River in Jackson County, West Virginia. Although most of his neighbors were Union adherents during the Civil War, Abednego was a Confederate sympathizer. He was seriously wounded by a shot from ambush during that period of strife. In 1866, they moved to Lower Flat Fork in Roane County, West Virginia. Both were members of the Baptist Church. On 9-9-1856, he conveyed to his wife's sisters, Phoebe Hay and Rachel Hay, a large boundary of land on Lazarus Branch and Backbone Ridge. About that date each family established a farm home on separate portions of this land.
