I am researching the Abbott Family in Fayette County, PA, and found that Catherine Abbott, daughter of Jeremiah Abbott, married Alexander Ong.I am trying to learn more about this Abbott family.Have you picked up anything about them in your research?
I recently (early April 2000) went to Fayette City Cemetary looking for the grave of James Abbott.The cemetary is now called Mt. Auburn Cemetary.I found some graves there that may be of interest to you and other researchers of this surname.They are:
(These are all in the same section in the older part of the cemetary)
William Lynn, died Oct 10, 1869, aged 10 years, 11 months, & 25 days.
Katie, (I think it says daughter of SJ Chess) died Feb 10, 1859, aged 10 mos. & 2 days
Mary, wife of Jeremiah Ong, died July 21, 1845, in the 62nd year of her age.
Finley Ong, sone of John & Jane Ong, died July 19, 1888, can't read years, 9 mos., 17 days.
In memory of Jane Ong consort of John Ong who died June 9, 1838 in the 43d year of her age.
Sarah J. wife of W.F. Chess, died Nov 10, 1866, aged 32 years.
Hope this helps someone.If you have any information about Catherine Abbott's family, please let me know.
