Birth: Feb. 9, 1873

Death: 1913
Dallas County
Texas, USA

John Aurelius "Buddy" Abbott was the son of William Henry Abbott and Sarah Frances Bloodworth Abbott. He was also know as "Buddy". He was born on February 9, 1873 in Sardis, Panola Co, MS. He married Cecil Demarest Eavenson in Panola Co, MS on October 30, 1896. Cecil and Buddy were the parents of:
Lura Abbott (Gandy) b. 8/29/1897
Willis Ralph Abbott b. 12/13/1898
Henry Elbert Abbott b. 3/13/1902
Jackson A. Abbott b. 7/25/1906
Cecil Loyd Abbott b. 12/1/1913* see below

About 1908, Buddy's parents, and several siblings moved to Dallas, Dallas Co, TX; however, the 1910 federal census shows that Buddy and family were still in Panola Co, MS. According to several living relatives who knew him; however, Buddy actually died early in 1913. The Abbott relatives were very confused about the death of Buddy Abbott. They remember being told Buddy died before Cecil Loyd Abbott was born in 1913. However, his tombstone says he died in 1915 and the 1920 Mount Vernon, Franklin Co, Texas census says he was alive in 1920. No death certificate has been located. In actuality, his sister, Lura Abbott and an unknown father, were his parents. Cecil Demarest decided to raise him as her son and he was never told of his parentage. Because Buddy Abbott was the putative father and he was deceased, Cecil Demarest had to "fudge" his death date. Cecil Loyd Abbott was never told of his parentage. By 1930, Cecil Demarest and "son" Cecil Loyd had moved to Malvern, Hot Spring Co, Arkansas and were living in a boarding house. Cecil Demarest stayed in Malvern until she died in 1964.
