Searching for family of Arminda Matilda Abbott., father, William Abbott. Arminda was born in VA, 1831, family was in Sparta, MO, Taney County around 1840/45 as this is where she met her husband, Silas Scruggs Stacey who was going to school there.They were married in Springfield, Greene Co., MO in 1845.She died in Mo., 1872. Another posting mentions a La Fayette Abbott born in Sparta, MO in 1851. Probably a relative? Arminda was only 15 when she married Silas, so she was surely with her family at the time she met him!
