What more do you know about the James Abbott photo on your page: http://abbottfamily.weebly.com/abbott-authors.html I'm researching my Abbott genealogy but it is very fuzzy... here's what I think I have: 1. Richard Abbott (b. 1720) 2. James Abbott (b. 1740) m. Sarah ___ 3. Nancy Abbott (b. 1770, d. 1789) m. Julian Phelps, Sr. 4. William "Shorthand" Phelps m. Sarah Logsdon ... Can you tell is my James is the same as your James? Thanks in advance, Joe D. Johnson email@example.com
Thank you so much for your website! I cannot stop reading on it! I have recently gotten into my ancestry and absolutely love it! I am a decent of George and Hannah Chandler Abbott through their son William and on down. I am new to all this and still learning the ropes of genealogy but I am in absolute awe of the Abbott family and I am proud to be an Abbott. Thank you for sharing your research. This is a screen shot of my lineage so far. I am now working on finding supporting details. Any pointers for a beginner? Thanks again!
Oct 6, 2012 Hey cuz! Yes indeed, from George and Hannah. Where I grew up, on Abbot Hill in Wilton, NH, the next farm to ours was still called the Chandler farm. When some Andover families moved to settle Wilton, NH, after the French and Indian war, they settled near each other as they had been in Andover (especially related families). Interesting, isn't it? I'll look and see what I might have about William A. /I recently moved, so all my stuff is still in stacks of boxes. But labeled, so I SHOULD be able to find it....:>/ ELinor A On Sun, 6 Oct 2013 8:53:48 -0400 <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: >Hello Elinor, Thank you for the link to your book, it is something I would really like to read. Are you, like me, descended from George Abbot and Hannah Chandler Abbot? If so, that would make us distant cousins. I have been to Andover a few times and love it there. Next in my lineage is their 6th child, William, born November 18, 1657, died October 24, 1713. Information about him is very scarce, I was wondering if you have any info about him that you could share or maybe some possible sources I could research. Thank you in advance and I look forward to your reply. Sincerely, Ernie Abbott Cumberland, RI 401-419-1047 or 401-333-5433
If this is Ernie Abbott...I wonder ...as it seems you may be interested in family history... if you are interested in Abbot(t) family history. Something I saw on line had your email. I wrote a history of the town of ANdover, Mass., which has a lot of Abbot family history in it.
