Hi.....I'm looking for the parents of Eli ABBE born 1820 and his sister, Triphena (ABBE) born 1817.
Eli ABBE married Rachel (FERGUSON) and they lived in Upstate NY. at least by 1855.
Children: Sarah M. Jane - m. William HYDE Edwin Porter - m. Ellen (ALLCOTT) Hannah Isabell - m. Robert JOHNSON William E. Mary Triphena - m. Meeker M. CULVER in Van Buren Co., MI. (poss.) Margaret Reuben Ferguson - m. Mary Elizabeth (COX) in Missouri
Rachel (FERGUSON) ABBE was the daughter of Reuben FERGUSON and Jane ?
I noticed that you have the BAIRD NAME. Sarah "Sally" (FERGUSON), dau. of Reuben & Jane (?) FERGUSON, married Josiah BAIRD.They lived and died in Van Buren Co., MI.
I've not been able to find out where my ABBE/ABBEY family lived while they were in NY.
The mother of Eli ABBE "may" have been Matilda (KING), and she may have been married to a Mr. ROGERS prior to her marriage to Mr. ABBE.If I'm correct, she may have been married to a Mr. BROTHERTON after the death of Mr. ABBE.
If you find any information connected to your family line for an Eli ABBE/ABBEY born 1820, I would sure appreciate hearing of it.
