Evaline Nesbitt Workman Abbott
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 5, 1836
Logan County
West Virginia, USA
Death: Aug. 9, 1914

She was the daughter of Andrew Workman and Louisa T White Workman.

She was married first to James Blackburn Ballard on 30 March 1854 in Boone county VA now WV. He was a member of the 7th WV Cavalry serving for the Union army. After the Civil War she had great financial hardship in raising her three children. She had trouble proving that her husband James Blackburn Ballard served in the Civil War and needed his pension. The court house where the marriage records were stored was burned during the Civil War. The justice of the peace who had married them had "been removed to parts unknown." She later married William H Abbott on 25 September 1866. They settled at Dry Creek in Raleigh county. William's father Wilson Abbott was a large land owner and owned much of the area now called Dry Creek in Raleigh County, WV.
My grandmother Eva Ballard Burnside always told me she was named after her grandmother Evaline and how she had been raised by the Abbotts.
