After reviewing your message, I finally think we are probably not related, but there are some weird coincidences: My mother's family is Abbott, and they come from around Wharton, Texas (which is in Wharton County). My great-grandfather is Edgar Bell Abbott, and your message listed an Edgar and a Belle (consecutively) among the Abbott children. But Edgar Bell Abbott was born in 1876, and that wouldn't seem to jibe with the dates you listed. And Edgar's parents were Benjamin Franklin Abbott and Mary "Mollie" Emaline Goodgame. Oh well, sorry. I was starting to get excited that I had found a relative.
