Hello Kelly, I was very happy to hear from you. What a great Abbott Family History you have. I just got a good start on reading thru it but just wanted to let you know that I got your post. I live in Paynesville, MN and I think I remember the Abbott house you have a picture of.Sadly - it's not there any more. My husband will know more about that house - so I will show him the picture tomorrow.
I will get back to you with questions or to offer any tidbits on Sarah "Sadie" (McGuire) Dugan/Wilkins/Abbott, if you're interested.
