I am your first cousin and I have done a little research in the Jasper Public Library on our grandfather, Charlie Abbott. I have found that he was born in 1901 to James and Dicy Abbott. I got this from the 1910 census of Marion County, Alabama. He was the seventh of eight children. The census records show that his paternal grandparents were born in Georgia. James and Dicy Abbott were married in 1882. They were both born in Alabama according to the 1910 census record.
