Looking for information about James Eugene ABBOTT, b 24 Sep 1856 in Dane Co WI, d 27 Jul 1909, m 14 Jun 1882 to Flora Bell NOFSKER(NOSKER) in Pendleton, Umatilla OR. At the time of his death the family lived in Crawford, Dawes Co NE, but he may have died in Red Oak, Montgomery Co IA where his wife's family resided. The couple had ten children: Archie(b 1883), Madge(1885-1954), Fay Eugene(b 1887), William Freeman(b 1889), Linnie May (b 1891), Della Bell(b 1893), Jay Earnest(1896-1911), Emma Lou(b 1898), Sydney Benjamin(b 1900), Lee Wayne(b 1902. His parents may have been Freeman ABBOTT and Melinda EASTMAN. The ABBOTT family may have been in Maine earlier. There is a photograph in a family album of the "James and Simon ABBOTT house in Stow ME built ca 1800. Also a picture of Omar & Lillie Charles of North Chatham NH in a house which straddles the ME/NH state line. The Charleses may have been either family or friends. North Chatham is just across the state line from Stowe NH. Would like to confirm James's parents and learn of earlier generations.
