Hi Dave,Could we be talking about the same John Abby/Abbe/Abbey as I descended from? See if this is anwhere consistant with anything you have.
John Abby ...Mary Abby, b abt 1772,Vermont, d 11-18-1872, St. Clair Michigan ...Alpha Chaffee, Sr., b 1765, Westminster, Vermont, d at Black Lake, New York .....Polly Chaffee, b 3-13-1798, d abt 1873 probably in Michigan .....William W. Bowman, b 1797, New York, d abt 1860, St Clair, Michigan If are on the same track, perhaps we can exchange data. Good luck with your search. Roy Bowman
