Birth: Sep. 25, 1760
Essex County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Dec. 25, 1841

From contributor Richard Bump: Daughter of Benjamin Willson (1734-1818) and Lydia Bancroft (1738-1811) of Danvers. She was born in Danvers 25 Sep 1760. As noted she married Nathan Abbot.

She was the mother of at least eight children: Elizabeth (Abbot)(Russell) Frederick (1786-1833), Martha (Abbot) Cushing (1788-????), Nathan (1790-1864), Lydia (Abbot) Stevenson (1792-????), Sophronia (Abbot) Bushby (1795-????), Judith (Abbot) Felton (1797-????), Asenath (1801-????), and Mary (Abbot) Bushby (1804/1806-????).

References for these children can be found in Vital Records birth and death records as well as Rev. Abeil Abbot, D.D., and Rev. Ephraim Abbot, A genealogical register of the descendants of George Abbot, of Andover: George Abbot, of Rowley; Thomas Abbot, of Andover; Arthur Abbot, of Ipswich; Robert Abbot, of Branford, Ct.--and George Abbot, of Norwalk, Ct, James Munroe and Company, Boston, M DCCC XLVIL. I annotate Mary;s birthdate between 1804-1806 since there are discrepancies in the records Vrs and and the book.
