The 1860 Bates Co., Deer Creek Twp, MO lists a "Drura Abbott" : #1129 Drura Abbott, 56, b. NC wife Mary 56 Susan 18 IND Martha 13 IL Amanda BURNETT 11 IL James Burnett 8 Iowa Julia A. 6 IL Jonathan MILLER 30 Ohio Sarah MIller 20 b. IND (believe this is daughter of Drury) William H. Miller 3, Ind
Living nearby was his older daughter, Lucinda Abbott RAY with her husband Wilson RAY.
In 1850 he is found on the Franklin Co., IL census: #538 Drury P. Abbott, 46 b NC (1803) Wife Polly (often a nickname for Mary) 44 b. NC Wiley Abbott 20 b. TN (1830) Alexander Abbott, 20 TN William 15 IND Sarah 13 Ind Thomas 11 IND John H. 9 Ind Susan Jane 6 Martha IND (1843)
A pension for Wilson RAY states his wife, Lucinda Abbott RAY's father was Drury P. Abbott.
I beleive that previous to 1850 he is on the 1830 Roane Co., TN census list - but no proof.
The birth places show a clear migration from NC>TN>KY>IND>IL>MO .However, in 1870 I do not know where the family members are and no Drury - so he may have died in MO or when Lucinda & Wilson RAY moved back to IL after the war (Bond & Montgomery Co.).
