Hello!I am researching my husband's side of the family.He is descended from Abbie L. Dearborn (b. 1848) who married Henry Dustin Bates.It goes Abbie (8), Josiah B. (7), Henry (6), Josiah (5), Peter (4),Ebenezer (3), Thomas (2), Godfrey (1).
They lived in Vermont and died in West Fairlee Vermont.I believe Abbie died in 1886.I am wondering if anyone out there knows anything about these families?Her father, Josiah, was married to a few women, but Abbie's mother was Clarissa Smith.They also had a son who lived, Richard Henry b. 1858.
