RICHARD ABBE, son of John and Mary (Palmer) Abbe, born in Windham, Conn., July 1, 1730; died February 17, 1794 (?).

He seems to have lived in Windham, although the vital records of that town contain the birth of only one child, Merari (Mexari or Miriam).

Family traditions and names prove that Hezekiah, Mason, and Richard were also his sons and there were doubtless others. In his will he left a farm of 90 acres on Beaver Hill in Windham to his son Merari or Mexari. He is said to have been an officer in the Revolution.

Married MARY HUNTINGTON, born in Windham, April 2, 1735, daughter of David and Mary (Mason) Huntington.

Children, some died in infancy
1 - Merari or Mexari Abbe, b. in Windham, Dec. 44, 1752. Several published records have given this name as Mexari, but the recent accurate copy of the Windham records has it Merari. The old manuscript of Windham vital records made by Jonathan Clark has it Miriam, but this is not likely 'to be as correct as one of the others. Received farm at Beaver Hill, Windham, by his father's will.

2 - Hezekiah Abbe, b. Jan. 4, 17.55, in Union, Conn. ; m. Martha Manning.

3 - Mason Abbe, b. April 17, 1759; m. Sarah Frisell.

4 - Richard Abbey, b. at Windham, Aug. 15, 1769; m. Dolly Ellis.

5 - (daughter), m. Dodge and lived in Vermont.
