I am descended from Joseph Abbott, born 1805 somewhere in VA, who married Keziah Narcessia(sp?)from TN and reported to be Cherokee.Their first child Mary Elizabeth was born 1821 in NC somewhere, as were their next 4 children. The next 4 children were born in VA.The whole family ended up in MO. Children include: Mary Elizabeth Elisha Martha Jane Benjamin Ruth William Ann Rachel Sarah
I would really like to connect these folk with Abbotts further back, but so far no luck.
