I'm trying to verify my grandfather's notes about the Abbotts (I've already found some dates that do NOT match up, alas!!)There are so many Aaron Abbot(t)s in between Massachusetts and Indiana that I think Grandpa got some of them confused.
I'm trying to find out info on Aaron Abbott b. in NY abt 1791(?), was in Vermillion Co., IN, by 1850, d. bef 1860, m. Sarah (1810 - ?).Possibly there was a first wife (Anna Fortner?), but this may be incorrect.May be the son of Lemuel and Dorothy House (the Rowley, MA line)?
There is the possibility that this Aaron is so much older than his eldest child (41 yrs, 55 yrs older than youngest) that this could be a grandfather taking care of grandchildren?
Aaron Abbott's son, Daniel, is in the 1850/60/70 census in Vermillion Co.Born 1841 in Indiana, married Susan (Crippen) in 1865.Children: Fred, Celeste, Blanch.As of 1850, Daniel's siblings were Aaron (b 1832), Amanda (b. 1839), and Anna (b. 1846).In 1860, Sarah is a 50-yo widow with Amanda, Daniel L (a laborer), Anna, Druzilla age 6, and Diadama age 5.
I'd appreciate any light you can shed on this family and their ancestors!Thanks.
