Almost all of my lines go through the Washington/Willis/Warner lines.
I am also a descendant of: Adam "Ad" Lawrence m. Sarah "Sally" Miller; Joel Layne m. Mary and Martha Hinton (sisters); Col. Alexander Oliver m. Mary Warner; William Robert Briggs (son of Robert Bridges m. Mary Landon' m. Judith Wroe, and also at connect toThomas Landon m. Mary De Laval, their dau. Elizabeth Landon m. Robert King Cater; on both sides of my family I descend from: Col. George R. Reade, Esq. m. Elizabeth Martiau and Augustine Warner m. Mary Townley. These are just reference points to try to find out who Benjamin Franklin Abbott's parents are. Caroline Pickett Willis is the dau. of  Ann Johnston and William John Willis (the Muchmore lines), but nothing to be found out about her otherwise.
