The above information posted by Stephen Gorman is combining children and census information and facts from my Gorman line and combining it with his.  This Gorman line never left Massachusetts for California.

Stephen's Gorman Line:

Thomas Gorman b. about 1810 Ireland d. 18 Dec 1880 in Boston, Suffolk, MA.
Married 1st Mary Healey (marriage date unknown, named learned from children's death records.)  She died before 1854.
     Their children:
          1.  Dennis J. b.1842 d.1912
          2.  Patrick T. b.1844 d.1907
          3.  William P. b.1846 d.1914
          4.  Thomas b.1849
Married 2nd Catharine Connell on 31 Jan 1854 in Boston, Suffolk, MA.
     Their children:
          1.  John W. b.1856 d.1895
          2.  Timothy F. b.1858
          3.  Richard H. b.1859

His Death Record in 18 Dec 1880 in Boston, MA also lists his parents names as John & Mary.

Hello, Cindy. My mtDNA is J1b1a1b and family names are McRee, Godbold, McCall and McLaurin. Written and oral history goes back to Scotland,1610, but none of those names have turned up in my list of matches!

There is a 2 volume book "Descendants of George Abbott of Rowley, Massachusetts" by Lemuel Abbott, 1906, which details many Abbott families in America.
The book has been reprinted by Higginson

The Thomas Abbott 1632 line is discussed starting on page 902.
If I see other lines noted in this project and mentioned in the book I'll update here.

Our family is descended  from George Abbott and I was expecting to see others here in the Abbott Surname Project.
