My middle name is Lynn to. I do not know what the M in Henry M. Abbott stands for. I am trying to find that out and who his father is.Henry married Mary Elizabeth Watson birth& death 1833-1904 Henry M Abbott 1827-1901 He and Elizabeth by 1850 were in Talladega,Alabama I think their 10 children were born there. Arthur Vernon Abbott is my grandfather, 1873-1960.I hope this will help you in some way I have found more Abbott's in the last week than I have in the last 30 years. I hope to sit down next week and go over all of them and compare dates. Your Abbott's seem a very good possibility to be related to mine let's be sure to check this out well and stay in touch.
