Does anyone have any information on the Abbott that lived in Bater Springs, KS from about 1922-1950? My great grandfather, John Stafford Abbott, was a postal clerk in that area during the Depression era.
In a census taken in Kansas in 1925, my great grandfather and my great grandmother Nellie Viola Wood were living at 2024 8th Street in Baxter Springs, KS. They had six children living with them. The oldest four were my great grandfather's children from a previous marriage(s). The youngest two were the children that John and Nellie had together:Barren, age 21, John Jr. age 14,Elizabeth, age 12,Edna, age 11, James age 7, and Walter age 2. James is my grandfather.
John Sr.'s mother was named Susie (maybe Sarah)Elizabeth. I do not know her maiden name, but her married names were Abbott and Barber. She died in Baxter Springs, KS on September 21, 1942. She had a half sister named Charity Inman.
If this sounds familiar to someone, please contact me.
