Probably not the John you're looking for, but just in case. He was b. Lincoln ME, d 29 Sept 1808 in Sidney ME. This man lived in at least 5 ME towns & did own some land. He had at least two children, incl. Henry Perry Abbott b 8 jan 1828.John's parents: Sgt. Jos. Abbott b 10 July 1752 Lexington MA, d Sidney ME after 1804 & Ruth Buckman, b Lexington MA. This Abbott line doc. back to at least 1540. John m. Mary Delano, family of Franklin Delano Roosevelt; publ genealogies take this line back 1000 yrs. If this is your John, you're in luck. If not, perhaps another Abbott can use.Best wishes. Will share info.
