I am Joe Abbet, Jr. I have tracked my ancestors to Randall Abbet, who defected from the south to join the northern calvary in Missouri. He changed the spelling of his name from "Abbett" to "Abbet" at that time to hide his actions. He was married twice. His first wife's name may have been Sarah. Family lore has it that he was a redheaded Irishman. His son (my great-grandfather)claimed to be the "seventh son of the seventh son". Any information you have on this family, please respond. I might be able to fill in some blanks for you as well.
