In your Abrams book does it say exactly where your Abrams came from before coming to Mass?I have a book on the Abrams family of South Carolina. They were Scotch-Irish Presbyterians. The earliest record was of James Abrams b. 1745 who appeared in Newberry Co., SC in 1773 when he married Mary Tedford of County Antrim, Ireland.From the naming pattern of the children, I think James' father was William Abrams and his mother was Anna.Is there any mention of these people in your book?
