I am almost Abbott searched out. My Abbotts bounce around too much. I am in Houston, TX. Grandfather, Ralph William m. Birdie Briggs, Williamson Co., TX, his father is Silas Alexander (AL) m. Martha Layne, his father is William Augusta m. Nancy Jane Weems (KY) , his father is Benjamin F. m. Caroline Pickett Willis , his father is supposedly Alexander Abbott who moved to Canada in late early 1900's? Two Abbotts moved there in late 1890's? and changed their names to Lawrence and Layne, old family names of mother and grandmother. This was due to a confrontation with the Olive Boys (gang). My Abbotst, I am told, go to George, Archbishop of Cantebury. This Abbott line is also tied into to Lawrence/Washington/WIllis/Miller/Briggs (Bridges)/Lewis lines related to Mildred Washington, aunt of Pres. Is anyone related to us? Doesn't seem like it. LOL.
