I would like to exchange information with you on this Abbett family.
James M. Abbett, born 30 May 1859, son of William A. & Mary Barnhart Abbett; married Ida M. Mitchell 06 Feb 1879 in Bartholomew County, Indiana.Ida was the daughter of James C. Mitchell & Amanda Wright.According to Bartholomew County Birth Records, James & Ida Mitchell had eleven children, the last being born on 06 Mar 1900, the day Ida died.James M. Abbett died 18 Mar 1900; his mother Mary Abbett died 22 Mar 1900.
Of the eleven children, I have positively identifed three: 1)Mary Addie Abbett, born 30 Jul 1882; living with grandfather William Abbett in 1900; probably same woman who married Frank Clem, 08 Oct 1902, Bartholomew County.
2) Earl Abbett, born 10 May 1892; living with Thomas and Eliza Vickers Noland, 1900; Eliza was his mother's half-sister.
3) Bernice Abbett, born 07 Feb 1894; living with William and Lou A. (Lucinda) Abbett Jett; Lou was her father's sister.
I am looking for information on all descendants of this Abbett-Mitchell family, as they descend from the larger Stafford family I am tracing: Ida M. Mitchell Abbett (1858-1900), daughter of James C. Mitchell & Amanda Wright (1831-1866), daughter of Achor Wright and Eliza Stafford (1809-1854), daughter of Francis Asbury Stafford & Eliza Henshaw, pioneer settlers of Coschocton County, Ohio.
