Re: Abraham Connett - Athens County, Ohio
I researched this line due to a Heathcote connection in my tree - here is what I know.Daniel Connet b. ~ 1740 NJ married Eleanor.One of their sons, John connet b. Essex Co. NJ ~ 1786 married Rebecca Pickett on January 1810 in Wood Co., VA [now WVA]. They were in Athens Co. OH shortly after that and had children: James, Daniel, Gardner, Heathcote, born in Athens Co OH.By 1850, and probably earlier, they had moved to Wells Co., IN. They had additional sons Isaac, John, and Pickett Price Connet in either Ohio or Indiana. Your Abraham is probably the brother of John and son of Daniel, or some other close relationship.I didn't trace all of the Connet's - Rebecca Pickett, wife of John Connet, was likely a daughter or granddaughter of Heathcote Pickett b. 1700-1730 in or near Heathcote's Cottage, Joppa, Baltimore County, Md.His mother was Elizabeth Heathcote and father William Pickett.I have a Heathcote ancestor likely relatedwho also had family that moved to Athens Co. and Hocking Co. in Ohio.That would be Ann Amelia Heathcote b. abt 1740 who married Robinson Chilcote.I trace through Robinson's son, Robinson L. Chilcote and his daughter Cynthia Chilcote who married William Stevens and they lived in Hocking Co OH.
