Ron, My great-great grandparents Hiel Abbott and Elizabeth Copeland lived in NC and moved to Ala., but their brothers and sisters appear to have moved to Jackson Co. In. Hiel's brother John Abbott appears in several In. censuses between 1820 & 1850 and Elizabeth's sister Mary appears in 1850 census.Elizabeth's brother Hugh appears in marriage records for Jackson county.The 1850 census seems to show John Abbott living with David Copeland's family.I suspect that David is the son of either Hugh or James Copeland, Elizabeth's brothers.There are a number of Marriages for John Abbott's although none in Jackson County, and James Copeland's but again not in Jackson County.
Do you have any information on this John Abbott, or for that matter the Copelands.
