The Epitomy of Pedigree Collapse - 52 Ancestors #23

This week's 52 ancestors theme is weddings. No good wedding stories come to mind so I thought I would outline all the marriages that link me back to the immigrants, George & Hannah (Chandler) Abbott.

George & Hannah (Chandler) Abbott had thirteen children, including seven sons who lived to carry on the Abbott name. Add to the confusion with other immigrants with the Abbott surname and untangling the Abbotts is not an easy task. The descendants of George & Hannah also had a habit of marrying cousins so my lines are very interesting. Given the difficulties, I welcome any corrections that might send me off chasing more Abbotts. This is done to the best of my ability at this point in time. 
  1. John b. 2 March 1648 m. Sarah Barker
  2. Joseph b. 11 March 1649 - d. young
  3. Hannah b. 9 June 1650
  4. Joseph b. 30 March 1652 - d. young
  5. George b. 7 June 1655
  6. William b. 18 November 1657
  7. Sarah b. 14 November 1659 m. Ephraim Stevens
  8. Benjamin b. 20 December 1661 m. Sarah Farnum
  9. Timothy b. 17 November 1663
  10. Thomas b. 6 May 1666 m. Hannah Gray
  11. Edward b. abt 1668-1669 - d. young
  12. Nathaniel b. 4 July 1671
  13. Elizabeth b. 9 February 1673
Line #1
The longest line of descent from George and Hannah comes from my great-great-grandmother, Mary Jane Abbott who married Edward Abbott Capen. Edward's mother was Sarah (Abbott) Capen, another descendant of George & Hannah. They were first cousins. Mary Jane was born in 1847 and died in 1940. 

Mary Jane's parents were John & Sarah (Ackley) Abbott. John was born on April 27, 1819 and died in 1902. He married Sarah on March 31, 1841. 

Generation 2. 
John's parents were both Abbotts! They were Aaron Jr. & Sarah (Abbott) Abbott. Aaron was born on April 11, 1778 and died on September 8, 1856. Sarah was born on June 26, 1780 and died on October 23, 1853. They were married on January 1, 1800.  They were second cousins.

Stephen's parents were (you guessed it) both Abbotts. They were George and Sarah (Abbott) Abbott. George was born November 7, 1706 and died October 6, 1785. Sarah was born on October 8, 1711 and died June 14, 1769. They were married on February 1, 1737. They were first cousins, once removed.
