Looking for parents of Abigail PENDLETON. She was born 30 Aug 1768 in Waldo, Waldo, Maine. She married David THOMAS in 1785 in Waldo County, ME. They were the parents of 12 children: Tilden, John, Elisha, John, Daniel, Mercy, Abigail, David, Lydia, Isaac, Rhoda, and Jacob. Abigail PENDLETON died 9 Nov 1867 in Acre Island, Waldo, Maine. I would love to know more about the PENDLETON family of Maine, and where they came from originally.
There are also several other PENDLETONS listed on the 1880 Census forIslesboro, Waldo, Maine. They were neighbors to Jacob PENDLETON (the son of Abigail and David THOMAS). They are listed as: John W. PENDLETON (sailor); Dodge PENDLETON (farmer); and Lyonas PENDLETON (sailor). They might be relatives of Abigail PENDLETON.
I hope someone knows something more concrete about this family. Thank you.
