I have been doing some family research and it seems as though we might have a common ancestor. Do you have anything in your records concerning a Mehabitle Abbot? My preliminary findings lead me to believe that she was a daughter of George Abbot (Jr).

I am writing to compliment your excellent page on the Abbott family name. I came across your page when researching my own ancestry on Ancestry.com. There is a long line of Abbbotts on my mother’s side, but I cannot say that I have traced the lineage with 100% accuracy. I am able to confidently trace the male side to a Moses Abbott (b. 1699). From there, I am not 100% confident with the tree that I created on Ancestry.com. My research indicates that Moses Abbott was married to a Bathsheba Gilbert. Are you of the same Abbott lineage as Moses Abbott? Am I far off?

Thank You from Russell Croker
Thank you so much for your kind comments, very much appreciated.
It is always a pleasure to get to meet a distant cousin, like yourself,
through my web-site. It is a "living" document that I continuously
update as new information is discovered. There are many more
pieces to the puzzle to be found. My brother's son, Justin Abbott,
just took a job in London, which is only 30 miles south from the
place, Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire, Great Britain, that our
common ancestors emigrated from in 1637. So check back as my
nephew does some research and reports back to me, I will be
posting it on the site.
Thank you again for taking the time to send me a comment.
Much love to you my cousin
GOD BLESS Ernie Abbott

Hello Mr. Abbott:
My name is Johanna Weigand and I have been researching my family tree (NEW family). I was adopted at birth (I'm now 50) and found my birth famiy 26 years ago. I have a wonderful relationship with them (my birth parents are married) and decided to find out my ancestry on my father's side.
I first did my tree just adding people to the tree and found I wanted more than just names and dates of birth and death. I'm not digging into people's lives to find out their occupations, more about them personally as people, etc.
When I came across your information on George Abbott I was thrilled. He is my 9th great-grandfather. You have given me more data than I ever thought was possible! Your video is beautiful. It literally brought tears to my eyes. The music is beautiful and I was impressed when I read your band had done the music.
I just wanted to take a moment and thank you. I am in the process of reading everything now, and will have wonderful information to add to this important part of my lineage.
I thank you for your kind comments and it is a pleasure to meet
another distant relation. My direct lineage relocated to Connecticut
from Andover and then to Rhode Island where they changed
from farming to factory work in the many mills along the
To answer your question as to why many in our lineage migrated
to New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine in the 1700's, mostly was because
many were preachers on missionary work for their church.
They were attempting to convert, especially the Native Americans,
into their religion. .Here is one example, "Abiel Abbot (1765-1859) Unitarian Minister "He was graduated at Harvard in 1787, taught in Phillips Andover Academy until 1789, travels throughout northern New England and Maine as a youthful missionary to the Indians and the remote settlements in 1789-1794."
That Rowley vs Andover George's still confuses me. i am still trying to find
what links them, are they sons of brothers or something else? I am also having
trouble getting information on our common ancestor William.
the son of George and Hannah. I have been to Andover several
times and visited the Historical Society there, and they were no
help. I also came across a document from a town meeting
in Andover, https://play.google.com/books/reader?id=acwTAAAAYAAJ&printsec=frontcover&output=reader&hl=en&pg=GBS.PA201
and on the page listing attendees it says "Edward Whittingham alias William Abbot."I encourage you to visit
archive.org go to book archive there and type ABBOT(T) in the search bar and you
will be able to read many books written by our ancesrors there. We have had
many teachers, preachers and authors in our legacy....a trend
that continues to this day.
Please stay in touch, I look forward to hearing from you in
Sincere Regards and GOD Bless.....

I love your Abbott family web site, very well done. I know this was a lot of work. Your efforts have clarified a number of questions that I had about my ancestors. We are of the same lineage from at least William (b. 1657), and perhaps from a more recent generation. My grandfather, Charles Leroy Abbott (b. 1892, Littleton, NH) moved to Auburn, ME, then to Portland ME where my Dad was born (1918), finally to Newton MA, hence my birthplace in Newton (1949). My dad, Richard N. Sr. was a Pediatrician and practiced in Natick, MA, which is where I was raised. I lived in Maine for 6 years (Bowdoin '71, U. Maine '73), Somerville, MA for 4 years (Harvard, '77), in Canada for 2 years (Post. Doc., Dalhousie U.1977-1979), and up to the present in Boone, NC. <www.appstate.edu/~abbottrn>. I am an emeritus professor of geology. Most of my geological work has been in eastern Maine, Nova Scotia, western North Carolina, Dominican Republic, and Jamaica.
I have attached a copy of the my branch. My grandfather spoke of a couple of Myrons (one b.1841, another b.1803) and Moses (b. 1778). He also spoke of relatives from Newbury, VT. From Myron (b. 1803) it was pretty easy working backwards to William (b.1657) and George (b.1617). This was my effort to sort out the Rowley vs. Andover issue.
Take a look at the genealogy. One question, why the migration to NH and VT in the 1700's? The Littleton folks were farmers before migrating to ME. In Lewiston, they owned a dry-good store. My grandfather (Charles Leroy, b. 1892) was a musician/composer, then investor, a banker in Portland, and before he died, when I knew him, he was the first vice president of New England Merchants Bank in Boston. My grandfather (Charles Leroy) is cited in "The Heritage Encyclopedia of Band Music." He composed and arranged J. P. Sousa style marching band music. I guess this didn't work out too well, which would explain the move to banking. Nonetheless, pretty good for an 8th grade education.
I hope the attached genealogy adds to what you already know. I have more information on the recent generations.
