Welcome to Abney ...

Although we found mention of Abney during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Abney was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists.

While we are confident that Abney was located in Saint Tammany Parish, we don't know its actual location within the parish.

We've added Abney to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Abney - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Abney, please Contact Us.




Time Zone: The area where we believe that Abney might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time

We believe that Abney would be found within the (985) area code.

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Abney and then turned east". While Abney could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Abney as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. The community might still exist or it might have existed for just a short period of time. Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, families in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc.

Also keep in mind that Abney could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong parish. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community.
