Thank you Alice. This allows me to sort out conflicting information I have on the ABBOT/ABBOTT half siblings. I am still seeking Edward's life story. Also birth of another Edward (1766-1833.) His birth was apparently in Canada He joined the army at 13, was commissioned a leiutenant in the 34 Regiment in March 1785, joined the New South Wales corps in Oct.1789,arrived in Port Jackson Aust. in June 1790. He ended up in Van Diemans Land (Now Tasmania Australia)and was very involved in public life. Repeating my thanks and hoping that somebody will be able to help further. Barb. S.
