Clarence was my great uncle! Clarence Norman Abbott was born Nov 5, 1909, and died Jan 6, 1989. I think he was living in Houston when he died.
Remember the Edgar Bell Abbott that I told you about? He was Clarence's father. Clarence's brother, Robert Leland Abbott, was my grandfather, and they had a sister, Gladys.
It might also interest you (or anyone else looking for Texas Abbotts or family from the Wharton area) that I have a 1931 Wharton High School yearbook. It has pictures of Leland and Gladys. I also have a book titled "Wharton County Pictorial History, 1846-1946: Our First 100 Years." Gladys and Leland are the only Abbotts mentioned (shown in an old elementary school photo supplied by Gladys).
