Thanks for your reply. Yes, I looked over your gen list and my goodness, there is a great deal of confusion. I really don't know why they did that. I'm assuming there was a reason. I did notice you listed the male side of the Abbotts mostly...do you have a list of the female side?
Do you have any info as to whether there is Mi'kmaq or Metis in your gen past? For instance, there is a line of Ivamy (poss listed as Ivany that are Mi'kmaq/Metis. Tremblett could have been Metis since a great number of Mi'kmaq married French settlers/fishermen in the beginning.
I also understand that Mary Ann may have been called Mary or Ann for short, etc.
