About John Abbe, Jr.

There were 2 other children named John Abbe born to John Abbe, Sr. and Hannah. They both died after a very short time, but to differentiate them from their 3rd child named John, John Abbe Jr., historians have named these children John Abbe 1, John Abbe 2, and John Abbe 3. This has caused confusion about the generations, but it is clear when you research their birth/death dates. The first two who died seem to be from a first wife of Johns' (Goodale). The surviving John Abbe, Jr., is born after his marriage to Hannah.

Marriage: 25 November 1674 to Hannah to death Wenham, Essex, Massachusetts, United States
