I have been trying to track down my mystery Abbott, William H., of Campbell Co. Georgia for quite some time. We know very few facts, but we believe he was born somewhere in Georgia around 1820. He was married to Elizabeth Smith in Campbell Co. (now south Fulton) in 1850 and died there in 1859. My ggrandfather William was born a few months later.
There are several Abbott families in that area, but he does not neatly tie into any of them. I'm interested in this Gordon County family because in the estate inventory my Mom copied down years ago, property in Gordon county is listed. Could he have been from there? The only "family lore" Mom remembers is that the family was "originally from New England".
