I am working on Reuben ABBOTT / ABBOT b. 1807-1810 in OH. I have much information on his daughter, Elizabeth (Betty) ABBOT (b. 1847 in MO) who married Sylvester McVEY on 5 Jun 1864 in Schuyler County, MO and their descendants. It sounds like your ggrandfather may be a descendant of my Reuben.Do you know his ancestor? I would love to exchange information. Please email me or write to 4545 Hagerwood St., Colorado Spgs,CO80920.
