Civil War and Indian Territory -ABBOTT
Posted by: Leah Date: July 20, 2001 at 10:14:13

I am in desperate need of ANY information that might provide a direction for me in searching for a lost ancestor and his Cherokee wife there about 1862.

Anyone with ABBOTT family information that might link this ancestor's orphaned boy, JAMES M. to their line PLEASE e-mail me

His father was killed in Civil War after he enlisted in Washington County. The mother was killed by raiding Indians on their way home to their land in Choctaw/Cherokee land in Indian Territory.

A sheep herder took James in. I'm not sure if he took their last name or if ABBOTT is his original name.

ANY help will be greatly appreciated. I've hit a dead end on this family line.
