Elanor Blodget Abbott
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 6, 1764
Tolland County
Connecticut, USA
Death: Mar. 28, 1853
Windsor County
Vermont, USA

Elanor and husband Daniel lived on the farm directly next to the Abbott Family Cemetery in Gaysville; it is the land on their farm that created this cemetery. The first person buried here is Daniel's father Nathan Abbott.
In the work entitled 'Memorial of the descendants of the Hon. John Alden' by Dr. Ebenezer Alden, MD, she is linked as a child of Hannah Alden and Joshua Blodgett, but her marriage is incorrect. It briefly states that she married a Thresher and (her sister) Olive married an Abbott. In fact, it is their sister Hannah that married Ebenezer Thresher, and Elanor who married Daniel Abbott. Olive married John Riddle and passed away in New York.

Olive Blodget (22438891) source (provided by FindAGrave Member James Blodgett (#46898800)) who cites:

Ten Generations of Blodgetts in America," page 44, and other sources in rootsweb including "F.L. Beller, Buckman, and Related Families" indicate that there was an Olive Blodgett born March 14, 1766, in Stafford, Tolland County, Connecticut. Olive married John Riddle about 1787. I located Olive and John's memorials in Alexander,
Genesee County, New York. Olive died in 1821 at the age of 55 years according to the stone's inscription, which matches up with her date of birth in 1766.

The headstone in the Abbott Family Cemetery is a memorial only; his wife rests in the Abbott Cemetery. Elam is buried in the Sunnyside Cemetery in Coupeville, Washington. Both links are provided here.

A daughter, Eleanor, was born on 25 May, 1787, married Reuben Putnam on 7 September, 1807 in Stockbridge. She died in Illinois.
