Hello Gordon,I have Abbott ancestors from Salem Co., NJ and wonder if they tie into your family. Thomas Abbott m. Margritt (Margaret) they had daughter Hannah b. in Salem Co. and d. ca.1745. Hannah married Benoni Dare prior to 14 Dec 1718 - this is the date on Thomas Abbott's will. I have no other info on Thomas and Margritt and would like to find out who their forbears were. Benoni and Hannah had 9 children and I descend from their son Reuben.I have a copy of the "The Descendents of Captain William Dare Vol.II: The Children of Benoni and Hannah Abbott Dare ..." and I checked the index for Suttons since you mentioned your Abbott married a Sutton and we're talking the same geographical area. I found 12. They are: (...) Johnson, Amos, August, Isaac, John Earle, John W., Lillie Evans Hires Morton, Margaret, Phebe, Phebe Bacon, Robert, and William. If any of those names ring a bell, I can check on dates, places, etc. for you. Hope to hear from you.
