I found your website (http://abbottfamily.weebly.com/ ). I was amazed while reading the story about my family lineage. I remember my grandmother Barbara Cannon telling me all about the house on Porter road and the family member who was captured by the Indians. Barbara was married to my grandfather Gordon Bailey Cannon. Unfortunately my grandmother passed away from a heart attack about a year ago now. Before she passed she left some old photos in handmade wooden frames of the Abbott family members from 1756-1834. These are very old and appear to be paintings that are about 3 inches wide by 4 inches tall. They are hand signed on the back from each of the Abbott family members. My wife and I use to have these handing in out atrium above the staircase in our old 1830 colonial home.
Going back through the family tree the Bailey family was related to the Abbotts somehow. My mom completed some genealogy with the family tree and all this is documented somewhere. She traced the family tree back to the Arch Bishop of Canterbury And Queen Elizabeth the first.
My mom and dad lived in this house above in 1974 when I was born. I remember the old storied about “Porter Road” from my mom. She use to tell be about the old Indian shutters on the windows and loved the old house.
The lineage as I understand it starting with me and moving backward in time is:
David Champy II: son of David Champy Sr. and Diane Elizabeth (Cannon) Champy (1949-2011)
Diane Elizabeth (Cannon) Champy: daughter of Barbara Ann Smyth (Carley) Cannon (died Nov 15, 2013)and Gordon Bailey Cannon (1923- 1991).
Gordon Bailey Cannon: Son of Helen Elizabeth Bailey (1888- 1979) and Gordon Roderick Cannon (1883-1944)
Gordon Roderick Cannon : son of Samuel Henry Bailey (1848-1939) and Elizabeth B Abbott (1850-1917)
Elizabeth B Abbott (1850-1917): daughter of Sylvester Abbott (1803-1875) and Rhoda Batchelder (1814-1895)
I believe that Asa Gardener Abbott (1803-1877) and Sylvester Abbott were the 2 brothers the house on Porter road was built for.
I am so proud of my family heritage that my daughters first name is Bailey.
Thank You for all the work you put into this page….Excellent work.
