I've got a real puzzle in my ggggm Rebecca Abbott.No one knows her parents, and this is the only story we have about her:
"Rebecca Abbott connected to Abbott Ship Lines out of Baltimore.Her grandmother leased land to city of Baltimore for 99 years.Rebecca's mother died when she was young, and she was raised by her mother's sister Nancy Porter.She had 2 brothers, Thomas and William, and 2 sisters.Rebecca is said to be related to the Chenoweth and Calvert families of Baltimore."
I contacted the Chenoweth experts and they said the only known Chenoweths to have married Porters settled in Jefferson Co, KY.In fact the Chenoweth descendant there was a Porter and he married Nancy Hall!
She married David McRoberts in 1827 "in NY" but I found the McRoberts were already living in Hardin Co, KY by 1820, coincidentally next to Jefferson Co, and home to several Chenoweth families.
The Census' have this on her: 1830 census says 15-19 yrs old 1850 census says born 1810 MD 1860 census says born 1806 MD 1870 census says born 1801 DE (cannot read or write)
I presume her siblings were also born in MD and came to Jefferson Co, KY.I can only guess that Thomas, William, and Rebecca will be common names in their families.
