Hi Cat. It is a moot subject now, However, my question was based on a statement from a book by Othman A Abbott titled "Recolletions 0f a Pioneer Lawer" reprinted in a small book " The "Family Tree of John Abbott" by Stanley H Abbott. O A Abbott was the first Lt. Governor of Nebraska. He said "....father was also a descendent of James and Mary Chilton of Plymouth, Massachusetts, Through Elizabeth Gray, their grend-daugher, who married William Abbot." That was my souece. I hav since found that Elizabeth Gray was not the grand daughter of Mary Chilton. Some time later the Mayflower organization printed a disclaimer about Elizabeth and William. Their is a FTM file on descendants of William Abbott. Hi wife was Elizabeth Geary. Her father was said to have been Nathaniel Geary. I was intersted in this as my wife is a Chilton and her grandmother an Abbott in William's line.
