Phillip Harris Abbott was married to Elizabeth Covert andwas the son of Phillip Abbot Jr.and ____Harris of Yates Co. NY and he was the son of Phillip Abbott, Sr..and Elizabeth Frye of Andover, ME. He was the son of John Harris Jr. and Hannah Farnham. He was the son of John Abbott Sr. and Hannah Chibb/Chubb. Next is Capt. Thomas Abbott and Sarah Stewart. Of Andover, MA Capt. Thomas was prob. born in Eng.
