I am looking for information on Thomas J Abbott (b. Mar 1858, d. 1938 - buried in Silver Creek Cemetery).
He was married twice.His first marriage was to Penelope Elliott (or Ellet) on 8/30/1883 in Clark County.Thomas and Penelope had three sons (Charles, Clarence, and Thomas) and one daughter (Bertha).Penelope was born Apr 1863 and died between 1900 and 1902.
His second marriage was to Penelope's sister Dialtha (or Delatha) Elliott (or Ellet) about 1901.Thomas and Delatha had one son, Robert.Dialtha was born in 1866, died in 1942 and is also buried in the Silver Creek Cemetery.
Both of the wives were daughters of George and Elizabeth Ellet who resided in Lafayette, IN.
I am interested in any information about the identity and birthplace of the elder Thomas's parents, and their relationship to other Abbotts in the Clark/Scott county areas.I am also interested in any available information concerning Penelope and Dialtha Elliott (or Ellet), including the burial place of Penelope.
