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?
