I wonder if your David could be the s/o Matthew Abbott of Pickens Dist. SC?Matthew was the s/o Wm. and Sarah Dennard Abbott.In the 1810 census he is in Spartanburg Co., SC with 8 sons and 3 daughters.Two of his sons are living next to him in Pickens Dist., SC in 1850.They are Barton and Anson.He gave his daughters, Clementine and Temperance, his homeplace in Pickens (now Oconee Co., SC) in June 1851.He is not found in the 1860 census so I assume he died bet. 1851-1860.I would love to find his other sons and David seems a possibility because of his son, Matthew Barton.
Please contact me for further info. Thank you, Susan Brock-Booker Walhalla, SC
