John Abbott

John ABBOTT is my first cousin nine times removed; we are related through his grandparents John and Judith[1] (BLOTT) GREENE, my ninth great grandparents.  John was born 24 January 1673 in Kittery, Maine the fifth son of nine children to Thomas and Elizabeth (GREENE) ABBOTT.[2]  John was a weaver by trade.  He married first Abigail NASON 2 January 1694 in Berwick, Maine.[3]  He and Abigail had the following children:  Abigail, John, Samuel, Jonathan, Moses, Elizabeth, Sarah, Aaron and Joshua.  He married second Martha LITTLEFIELD in Berwick, Maine.  John died 23 July 1719 in Kittery, Maine.

[1] There is question as to whether this Judith/Julian/Julia BLOTT is the correct person, there are many names used as the wife all beginning with “J” and BLOTT as the surname.
