I have been tracking a Lucinda Abbott who married a Wilson Ray in Franklin Co.
Family legend indicates her father was named Drury.A Drury P. Abbott signed in the marriage license process. She named a son Drury...so feel that it is her father.
On the 1850 Franklin Co., IL Census there is a Drury Abbott, 45, b. NC; wife Polly 44 b. NC: children, Wiley, 20, TN; Alexander 18 KY; Wm 15 IN; Sarah 13; a couple of children 9 & 8 whose names I can't make out; Jane 6, IND.
However, can't find them in 1860.Anyone related to this line?
