AbbottLouisa Norman AJ George Amanda Abbott Nancy E. Abbott Louis James M. Mrs.N.E. E.L. Abbott Edgar L. That about covers the information I have. I did copy the Census Index from 1790 to I believe about 1850 if this could help you please let me know.My husband and I were coming home from N.C. and found there are still Abbott's in the Spartenburg-Cowpens area of SC. I did not get to meet them but I hope someday I will.When I was a child mother and daddy took me to see Soloman Abbott's grave. I am so in hopes that I will find out if I am related to him or not. I can't help but feel related to him for mother has been working on this since I was five. We old Soloman has given me many days of studing SC history and with that I have developed a love for American History. Also Soloman has given me many days of pleasure researching his life so if I am related to him or not he will always be a special person to me and as real to me as all my Aunts and Uncles.My hat is off to this old gentleman.
