While researching my family, I have discovered that I have a set of ABBOTTS on my maternal grandmother’s side and a set on my maternal grandfather’s side. These are two very distinct lines with no know relation to each other.
Maternal Grandmother’s Line: Charlotte Abbott married Lewis Hayes in Salem, Oregon, in 1853. Charlotte’s father was Samuel Abbott, who fought in the War of 1812. They are all buried in Sparlin Cemetery located in Josephine County, Oregon.
Maternal Grandfather’s Line: Carrie Evangeline Abbott married William Anson Johnson in 1910. Carrie and William lived in Grants Pass, Oregon, for many years. After William’s death, Carrie moved to California, and died in Santa Barbara, California, in 1970. Carrie’s parents were: Elbert Spencer Abbott and Mary Cheney—both were born in New York state. Carrie’s siblings were Early Harold Abbott and Lewis Edward Abbott. I do not have information regarding Carrie’s siblings except for their dates of birth and death.
I would appreciate any information regarding these Abbotts. Thank you!
