One Response to Abraham Mark 1812 – 1872

  1. Hi!

    My name is Andrew (AJ) Mark. Grandson to Carl and Nancy Mark, Great Grandson to Miles and Helen Mark. I’m Currently in the Marine Corps. ANd very interested in where exactly I come from. Somehow, someway, I think we may be related! I am currently trying to research where I come from. Somewhere along the way the knowledge has been lost. I have traced it back to Abraham Mark (1812). I was wondering if you have found anymore information on him?
