I'd like information about Nathaniel Abbot, son of Nathaniel of York MA who had three wives. His first, Prudence Bracey, whom he m 9 Nov 1749, and d 31-31 May 1751 leaving him a son Nathaniel, who died. He then m Jane Bale of York on 2 Nov 1752. Thirdly he m Mercy Gowan of York, having entered marriage intention on 17 Nov 1764. Of this marriage they had Nathaniel Abbot b 30 Sep 1765. This last Nathaniel is the one I'd like to know about. What became of him? My feeling is that he left for the West with some Bridges, Bragdons and others from York in about 1790. If this is so, I have lots to share about his pioneer life.
