I am hoping someone has information on Willis (b. abt. 1798 in South Carolina)and Francis ? Abbott (b. 1804 in Georgia) in Perry County Alabama in 1830.The family was near Lewis Abbott, William Abbott, and John Abbott in the 1830 census.From their ages, I would guess they are brothers or cousins, or maybe unrelated.Willis and Francis moved to Chickasaw County, Mississippi in late 1830s, as he is first listed in the tax rolls in Mississippi in 1837.Children's name include Louisa S., John S., Emilene (married John Smith 1859), Nancy C., James Y?., George W. (probably George Washington), Susan, Jane, maybe others.From the birth place of their children, I would guess that they were in Georgia until about 1826 or 7.Then they were in Alabama until around 1837, when they moved to Mississippi.
In the 1880 census, Willis and Fanny are still alive.Willis' parents are listed as both from South Carolina, and Fanny's parents are both listed as being from Georgia.
