I'm a descendant of a Richard Abbott consistent with your description, through his son Thomas. My Richard had sons James, John, Richard, and Thomas. I'm trying to identify each son to cement the family group. The author of a book "The Abbotts of West Virginia" believes they descended from James through his son Joseph. Others believe James moved to Indiana. Do you have information on other children of James, when and where they were born, and what happened to James? Will greatly appreciate any help.
