Please accept my apology for taking so long to reply to your message.Between Christmas, surgery, a crashed computer and the general business of living I lost track of time.
I had taken several years off from my family history search and have just recently gotten back to it.I still know nothing about Courtney Abbott or her spouse Abner Williams.I have recently been working on tracking down their daugter Eliza (Elizabeth?)who married Wilson Gray Lamb.My cousin who lives in North Carolina is in possession of many Lamb family papers and I hope to visit him this summer and see if I can find out something about Eliza and her parents.
My cousin is also in posession of a ring that was said to be from Washington and given to Courtney Abbott.It may turn out to be one of those things that can never be proven and lots of families have one.
Anything you can add to my limited knowledge would be greatly appreciated.
