Born this day - Jul 10th

My Legacy file has 777 people born on Jul 10th.  The first one I am going to write about is Susan Maria Abbott. She is my 6th cousin 6 times removed.

Susan Maria Abbott was the daughter of Josiah Abbott and Ruth Estabrook and she was born 10 Jul 1820.

She married Benjamin C Schneider on 25 May 1858.

That was all the info I had and the only source I had for this was Descendants of George Abbott of Rowley, Mass., Vol 1.

I was able add a vital record source for her birth, marriage and death and I found an entry with a photo at Findagrave.

She was born in Massachusetts.  She died 25 Nov 1905 in Massachusetts.

death record for Susan Schneider in 1905, viewed at Ancestry.com

I also found her in the 1850 US census.  I also found her living with her parents in the 1855 Massachusetts census.

The record I was most pleased to see was a copy of her will.
