Query: ABBOTT Jackson or Scott Counties
Looking for information on Isaac Newton ABBOTT b.
Feb 1869 his birthplace may have been either Seymour, IN
or Scott Co,. IN We have been able to
locate only one record for him before his marriage in 1894 in Montana.1870
census show age 1, living with the family of Wm. H and Margaret JONES. The
census was taken in Vienna, Scott, IN.
A few listings apart on the same census were a family of John and Mary ABBOTT.
We have speculated that he may have been living with relatives because his
mother could not care for him but have no facts to support that. I have
not been able to locate him on subsequent censuses with either of these
families. Were any orphanages in the 1870s and 1880s in Indiana? Claudia Carlson
