I went through Dr. Abbot's genealogical information just to put it in some
sort of order. I came across a George Abbott, born 1630 in Norwalk, Fairfield
Connecticut. He died Feb 1690 Norwalk, Connecticut. His spouse's name was
Mary Weed and this was my aha moment. Dr. Abbot's eldest child was Ann Matilda
Weed Abbot. I hope that this is not just a coincidence ( Weed is not a common name).
I had never noticed this connection.
I just had to share the information before I got into a pending project.
Hope all is well with you and yours
Many Thanks for all you are doing!
