Mary Louise Abbott, Carol’s Great Great Grandmother

Mary Louise Abbott Hunter

Mary Louise Abbott (1840-1914) (Parents John Allen Abbott & Elizabeth Scott)

Mary Louise ‘Polly” Abbott married  Samuel Elijah Hunter May 3, 1855 and they had twelve children.  One of their sons founded the Hunter Cemetery in Charleston, West Virginia where there is an old and new part.  My paternal grandparents William & Barbara, Samuel & Mary, and James & Mary Jane are all buried in the old section.  My grandparents John Wesley and Honor are in the new section.  My great grandfather’s brother James Garfield Hunter is one of my favorite books about his life I have found.

As far as Mary Louise Abbott’s family genealogy research brings another famous person  to my lineage.  Sir Walter Scott is one of my favorite ancestral grandfather’s to write about.  In my library I have a favorite book written by a cousin, Rev. Daniel Scott who has proven our DNA to  this famous lineage.

Mary Louise Abbott’s family genealogy is a study of the Abbots of Virginia.
