M. L. or M. D. Abbott was the son of David & Elizabeth Abbott. He is found in the Gibson County TN census of 1870, Trenton PO (age 59) with brother James, mother Lizzie (age 78)and a servant.I believe he later married Miss Wright but I cannot find he or his brother after 1870. I would like to know where Lizzie (Elizabeth Cummins Abbott) is buried.
David Abbott was from New Hampshire and I believe his father was a Revolutionary soldier.M.D.L. Abbott was born in Rutherford County, TN.
