My family was from Indiana. They moved West into Illinois and then into Iowa about 1840. The brothers of Edwin Craig ABBOTT are not all accounted for, there maybe a connection. Edwin had the following brothers; Elon Barnum, Eldrege; and a sister Maria B. Elon is well documented, he had a son Charles, b. 12/8/1845.But I have no records on Eldrege ABBOTT.
