I really do have further information on ABEL LOOK. I am pleasantly surprised to share this with you.This is the first information I have ever found on ABEL LOOK and I have been searching for a long time.ABEL LOOK is my GGgrandfather too, but from a different spouse.First of all, here is the info I have and I will run it down to the present generation.This is just too close to be a different Abel Look:My information comes from an Aunt of mine and is hand written on the back of some genealogy papers probably gathered from an old family bible. ABEL LOOK married to MARY E. McGAN b. July 1803 Lebanon N. Y. d. 1-22-1881 p. Pittsfield, Mass.age 78+ 6 mo.
children of ABEL LOOK & MARY McGAN: ABEL DOLL b. 12/26/1827 Wm BENJAMIN b. 3/17/1825 MARIETTA b. 10/8/1822 LUCINDA LIVENA b. 8/1/1832 Now it gets a little sketchy, but here goes. ABEL LOOK B. ABT. 1800-1810 Conway-Hampshire Co. Mass. 1840 census-Isle of Wight Co. Va.ABEL LOOK age 30-40-but not in 1840 or 1850 census Va. Then it says,"see below", which I can barely make out the words, Census Berkshire Co. Pittsfield-national archives.Wash. Co. pg 253-beleive he was born in Conway-Hampshire Co. Mass. Now here is where I come in!!
