I'm a descendant of Samuel Abbott, b 1771, d 1823, Concord, NH md. Mary Currier, b 1776, d 1823, NH. Their son Samuel, b 1819, d 1903 md Eliza Ann Lester 1840.Son Samuel was orphaned at age 4 and raised by a Mr. Peabody.My Samuel came with Mr. Peabody down the Ohio on a flat-boat on the Ohio River to Switzerland Co., IN after 1823.He was a pioneer in Wabash Co., IN.
Eliza Ann Lester's parents were David & Sarah (Appleby/Applebee) Lester.Eliza Ann had a sister named Permilla who md. Augustus Adolphus Peabody. So there must be some connection to your Abbott-Peabody line.
I have the Abbotts back to George of England, b abt 1614 in Yorkshire, Eng.
