I am thinking your William J. Abbott's father might be Samuel Bradley Abbott b. 1803.My William J. Abbott is the son of Noah Abbott b. 1809.Noah and Samuel Abbott are brothers, their father was Henry Abbott b. abt 1780.My William J. Abbott married Martha J. Fertic, and one of their daughters Emeline Abbott b. 1966, married a William Compton b. 1862.Noah and Samuel have two other brothers Henry Abbott, Jr, and James.I am sure there are others siblings also.Btw, my gg-grandfather Noah married Nancy J. Johnson in 1833 in Ohio.All these families lived in Ross, Highland and Champaign Counties, Ohio. I found them in Paint and Scioto townships also.
