One Person at a Time: Another Abigail
~Even though I have a lot of people in my family tree, I also have a lot of "holes" that need more research. Over the next few months, I am going to attempt to patch up those holes by doing research one person at a time- starting at the beginning of the list~
Today's Name: Abigail
Abigail - unknown birth or death date. She married Uz Knapp and they had at least 1 daughter- Mary Susanna Knapp (1812-1870) who married Amos Mendenhall Jr. (1789-1872)- my 4th cousin, 8x removed.
I was unable to find Abigail's parents, but I did find out that her name was Abigail Sherman. She was born in 1765 in Amenia, New York and she died on 09 Oct 1815. She was buried in Cato-Meridian Cemetery in Cayuga County, New York. Abigail married Uz Knapp (1760-1815) in 1796 in Norfolk, Litchfield, Connecticut and they had 5 children:
