I am tracing my friend's family history. Her grandfather was Merritt E. ABBOTT (b. 15 Jan 1901, d. 01 Apr 1992, North Tonawanda, Niagara, NY).I noticed a Merritt in Scott's list of siblings.
This Merritt E. Abbottwas possibly of Native American ancestry. I am trying to determine his middle name and if he had a MERRITT line.
Do either of you know anything about this Merritt E. Abbott?
His father was said to have been a tugboat captain on the Erie Canal.
Do you know the name of his first wife, her birth and death dates, place of death, and cemetery.
Lastly, I would appreciate any information about the marriage of Merritt E. Abbott and his first wife; date, place, and church.
I will be more than happy to share any information which I may discover!

The Sophia Abbott I have in my database born in 1909 is actually listed as Josephine Sophia Abbott. Her brothers and sisters are Irene, Fred A., Ralph, Merritt, Henry, and Fred T. Her parents were Fred T. Abbott and Annie Belle Barter. Is this your great-grandmother?
