THE FOLLOWING IS AN EXCERP FROM THE BIOGRAPHY OF
CHARLES SMITH

…..Charles Smith was born Sept. 14, 1807, in Windham….

Mr. Smith was married at North Windham, Nov. 3,1835, to Mary Abbe, who was born Aug. 14, 1816, in Windham, and died April 10, 1901. She was a descendant of a family long noted in Colonial annals, and was the mother of two children: Guilford, mentioned elsewhere; and Mary, who became the wife of P. H. Woodward, of Hartford, and has two children, Helen and Charles Guilford, the former now the wife of Rev. Stephen Henry Granberry, rector of St. Barnabas’ Episcopal Church at Newark, N.J. Mrs. Granberry is the mother of two children, Helen and Mary Emeline.

The Abbe genealogy is traced to Mrs. Smith as follows: John Abbe a resident of Salem, Mass., as early as 1637, had two wives, both of whom bore the name Mary. The first died in 1672, and he was married to the second in 1674. He died at Wendham, Mass., about 1690.

Samuel Abbe, son of John Abbe, married Mary Knowlton in 1672, and died in 1698, having made his home at Wendham.

Ebenezer Abbe, son of Samuel Abbe, was born in Salem, Mass., in 1683, and was at Norwich, Conn., in 1705, and at Windham the following year. His home was near North Windham, in the town of Mansfield. In 1725, he united with the Hampton Church. He married Mary, a daughter of Joshua Allen, in 1707, and she died in 1766.

Joshua Abbe, born in 1710, married Mary Ripley in 1736. She was a daughter of Joshua Ripley, of Willimantic. Mr. Abbe had an extensive farm near the Chaplin line, which he called his “kingdom,” and owing to the influence which he exercised in the community, was often called “King Abbe.” He died in 1807, and his wife in 1769.

Phineas Abbe, son of Joshua Abbe, was born Nov. 22, 1746, and in 1767, married Mary, daughter of Gideon Bingham, Sr. She died, and in 1778 he married Susannah Brown. Mr. Abbe was a prosperous farmer in Windham, his homestead being south of Windham Center, where he died in 1800, his widow, who was born in Windham May 15, 1752, surviving until April 26, 1804.

Moses Cleveland Abbe, son of Phineas, was born Nov. 16, 1785, and married Feb. 1, 1809, Talitha Waldo, daughter of Zaccheus Waldo, of Windham. Mr. Abbe lived two miles south of Windham Center. His daughter, Mary, became the wife of Charles Smith, as above related. The other children are thus briefly noted: Susan married Andrew Frink, of Windham, and was the mother of a son, Edwin; George went to New York City, where he married Charlotte Colgate; Eliza Taintor is the widow of Henry S. Walcott, who was at one time president of the Windham bank, and died in Windham; Mary was fourth; Joshua G., now deceased, married Sarah Fuller, of Windham, who bore him a son and two daughters, Jessie, Waldo and Susan; and John Randolph, who was twice married, first to Lucy Avery, of South Windham, and, second, to Josephine Robbins, resides in Providence, R.I. (Lucy A. Abbe was the mother of Charles S. Abbe, now a citizen of Pittsburg, Pa.).


ABBY, ABBEY, or ABBEE, JOHN, Salem 1637, when gr. of ld. was made to him, of Reading later, and freem. 1685, then call. sen. so that perhaps he had s. of the same name, and very prob. is it, that he had others.

He was of Salem vill. now Danvers, when adm. freem. 1690. Only the youngest ch. was b. at W. and some discrepance. from the pro. rec. as to the ages of most of the ch. is furnish. me (by Mr. Felt) in the rec. of b. as that Ebenezer was b. 31 July 1683 ; Mary, 1 Mar. 1685 ; Sarah, 6 July 1686; Hepzibah, 14 Feb. 1689; Abigail, 19 Nov. 1690; John, 4 June 1692; and Benjamin, 4 June 1694. THOMAS, Enfield, perhaps br. of Obadiah, had Sarah, b. 31 Mar. 1684; Thomas, 1686; Mary, 3 Feb. 1689, wh. d. bef. her f. and John 1692; beside Tabitha. He d. 1728, leav. w. Sarah, and in his will of Dec. 1720, she and the two s. are nam. as also two ds. call. Sarah Geer and Abigail Warner. His s. Thomas had s. Obadiah, and Thomas; and John had John, Thomas, Daniel, and Richard; but prob. no gr.ch. ought here to be ins.
