  • Notes 
    • Abner once said to the only one of his brothers that he kept in touch with at all, "After it gets outside of my own brothers and sisters, I don't care a hang for my family." At one time he and Tom Toph owned the greater part of what is now Milan, Indiana, and laid out a Toph's addition of South Milan, later selling most of the lots to business industries there. For many years after, through some carelessness in records, delinquent tax was published against Abner in Ripley county papers. One of these lots was inherited by Violet Toph and sold some years later. His brother James told this story concerning Abner: "He separated from his wife, and went with his two sons to Florida. The younger son married a young woman in Florida, and soon after, the father married the younger sister of the son's wife. Some marriage mix-ups if you want to figure it out. I never heard whether there were any children by the second wife, nor what became of Guy and Abner and their descendants if they had any. I sometimes wonder if they had any sons to keep the name Toph going, if they didn't the name will soon be a goner."
