Civil War & Indian Territory - Abbott
DESPERATELY needed - Any Abbott family who might provide me with a possible link to my ancestor James M. Abbott.

I have trailed my Abbott family to N.E. AR during the Civil War time when James was orphaned. A sheep herder took him in.Don't know if James took their name or if Abbott was his original name.
I do know his father never returned after enlisting as a Confederate soldier in Fort Smith, and that his mother was killed by raiding Indians just outside of Mena.
ANY POSSIBLE LINK is greatly welcomed.
