I've been busy and haven't been able to respond to these messages.My line of ABBOTT's in Champaign Co. is John ABBOTT b. c. 1825, m1. Sarah Ann YOUNG c. 1850; m2. Tennessee Ann WRIGHT 23 Mar 1876.John d. c. 1890 and Tennessee married his nephew Emmanuel M. BARNES who was the son of Henry Barnes and Dorothy ABBOTT.
John and Tennessee had a daughter Mary Alice b. c. 1876.Other children were Rachel A., Abraha Arthur, Harry A., Grace, Charley, Aubert and Roy W.Children with Sarah were Rebecca J., John and Aaron.
I believe John came to Champaign Co. about 1850 but don't know where he came from or who his parents were.
