    Notes 
    • J. Ben Abbott was born in Oconee County, South Carolina,  January 19, 1839.  He was a grandson of John Abbott, veteran of the American Revolution.  Mr. Abbott enlisted in the Confederate Army at the beginning of the war and served four years under General Robert E. Lee.  He was a field artillery man in Orr's South Carolina Volunteers under Captain Sam Dendy and a Colonel Terrell.  Two of his brothers, George and Waddy Abbott, were also in the war, and none of the three was injured.

      In 1867 Mr. Abbott married Miss Elizabeth Carpenter, and to this union four children were born:  Kate Abbott Shaw, B. Preston Abbott, George Abbott and Cliff Abbott.

      Mrs. Abbott died when these children were very young, and Mr. Abbott remarried soon after.  The new Mrs. Abbott was also named Elizabeth. She was born in Oconee County, South Carolina on July 12, 1836.

      This family came to Texas by wagon in 1885 and first settled in Hood County; they later moved to the Spring Creek community in Parker County. They remained at Spring Creek until their deaths -- Mrs. Abbott on May 4, 1921, and Mr. Abbott on April 14, 1930.  Mr. Abbott was a Mason, and Mrs. Abbott belonged to the Eastern Star.
