Thank you for your website. I am just beginning genealogy and was researching my Abbot family when I stumbled on your website.
I have two genealogies for my Abbotts and I am unsure which is correct. I have an ancestry.com account and am in the process of trying to resolve the issue there, but it occurred to me you may know the answer off the top of your head.
The trees I have separate with the father of Benjamin A Abbott (b. 1799 in Maresville, Virginia).
One line (titled Turlington Hoss which I've attached) from Benjamin Abbott (b 1799 to father Armistead to Benjamin Abbott (b1743). It continues with southerners to Captain Joseph Abbott b.1719 in Andover Massachusetts (the last yankee in that line)
The other tree (titled Ridner Duvall, which I've attached) has the father of Benjamin (b 1799) as Benjamin B Abbott (b1743 in King and Queen, Virginia). It continues to John Abbott, born 1662 at Andover. This John was the last yankee in that line.
I recognize many of the names on your pages, but different birthdays. Obviously you have done much work in Abbott family history, and I was hoping if you didnt recognize my relatives at least maybe you would could point me to a Massachusettes or Virginia Abbott researcher.
At the least, thanks for taking the time to read this
My line to Olive is through my mother, Nancy Kelly, her mother, Myrle Simmons, her mother Mabel Mann, her mother Olive Abbott.
