***********************************

Joseph Martin "Joe Mart" Abbott was born on July 27, 1868 in Scott Co., Tennessee. He was the son of Thomas Abbott (1828- ?) and Mary "Polly" MNU ((1822- ?), the sixth of their eight known children.

Little is know about Joseph's parents. It is thought that they were born near the KY-TN state line in either Scott Co., TN or Whitley Co., KY.

Joseph, usually called "Joe" or "Joe Mart", married Martha Acres (1870-1850) on Nov. 2, 1888 in Scott Co., Tennessee. She was the daughter of Louis Jasper Acres (1847-1916) and Emeline Elizabeth Hughette (1850-1938), both born in the Scott County area of Tennessee.

Joseph and Martha were married for 43 years and had ten known children. They were Henry Abbott (1889-1965), Lewis Calvin Abbott (1892-1975), Floyd Abbott (1895-1966), Mary Abbott (1897- ?), Bertha Abbott (1901- ?), Eva Abbott (1903- ?), Ada Abbott (1905- ?), Delpha Abbott (1908- ?), Hilery Abbott (1911-1918) and Clifford Abbott (1914-1980).

In 1912 Joe and William Whitmill Stephens (1869-1956) moved their families from Scott Co., Tennessee to Parksville, Boyle Co., Kentucky. Thomas L. "Tom" King and his wife Minna "Minnie" (Gooch) King followed in 1916.

Joseph died on Oct. 5, 1931 in Parksville at the age of 63. He was buried in the Parksville Cemetery.

Joseph's wife Martha died on July 14, 1950 in Parksville at the age of 79. She too, was buried in the Parksville Cemetery, next to her husband Joseph.
