Samuel Bradley ABBOTT
Nancy BAKER
Sarah H. McCAFFERTY
Husband:  Samuel Bradley ABBOT / ABBETT / ABBOTT
Birth based on censuses:  1808/9, OH possibly Ross Co., OH
Birth said to be:  10 Oct 1803, Newton Twp., Pike Co., OH
Death based on censuses:  1870-80, possibly in Mifflin Twp., Pike Co., OH
Death:  16 Mar 1876, "Byrmington," OH 
Occupation:  farmer, Presbyterian-Methodist(?) minister, physician?
Brother(?):  William ABBOTT, b. 1780-90
Father:  Henry A. ABBOTT (1768-1840)
Mother:  Elizabeth MAYES (1775-1852)

I see no indication that Samuel was in Pike County before 1870.  Was someone guessing at his birthplace?  His parents were in Ross Co., OH, in the 1820 and 1830 censuses (the 1810 Ohio census was lost).  Samuel is said to have died in "Byrmington, OH," but I can find no such place.

Marriage-1:  18 Dec 1828, Ross Co., OH
Wife-1:  Nancy BAKER
Birth based on censuses:  ca. 1810
Birth said to be:  1807
Death seems to be:  1840-42
Death said to be:  1838, Decatur, Macon Co., IL
Occupation:  homemaker
Father:  Henry Rumbaugh BAKER
Mother:  Elizabeth SPANGLER
Marriage-2:  20 Oct 1842, Ross Co., OH
Wife-2:  Sarah [H. or Ellen or Helen?]  McCAFITY / McCAFFERTY not Sarah ROSE!
Birth:  1806/7, OH possibly Concord Twp., Ross Co., OH
Death:  aft. 1880 census
Occupation:  homemaker
Father:  John McCAFFERTY
Mother:  Nancy Ann SELLERS

Some secondary sources show Samuel's wife as "Sarah ROSE," alleged daughter of Lewis & Sarah (BIRDSONG) ROSE, presumably based on the fact that our subjects are living with them in the 1850 Census (see below).  However, not only do Samuel's marriage records refute that assumption, Lewis & Sarah weren't even married until 1812, too late to be the parents of Samuel's wife.  Plus, the 1820 census shows Lewis & Sarah with three sons and no daughters.  Sarah (McCAFFERTY) ABBOTT is, however, sister of Hannah (McCAFFERTY) ROSE, wife of Lewis & Sarah's son, Joel Washington ROSE.

Children with Nancy BAKER:
1.  George Henry ABBOTT, b. 22 Oct 1829, OH; d. 15 Oct/Nov 1914, Fairfield, Camas Co., ID
2?  (Daughter A) ABBOTT, b. 1830-35
3.  Elizabeth A. "Nancy" ABBOTT, b. 1835/6, OH or IN
4.  Andrew Jackson ABBOTT, b. 1839/40, Macon Co., IL

"Nancy" is a nickname for Ann.  Either Elizabeth [Ann] and Nancy are the same person, or there were two daughters born ca. 1835.

Child with Sarah McCAFFERTY:
5.  John S. ABBOTT, b. 16 Nov 1845, Concord Twp., Ross Co., OH; d. 19 Nov 1926, St. Louis, MO

It's unfortunate that the new LDS database, unlike the old IGI, doesn't appear to discriminate between primary records and patron submissions or, at least, doesn't make it obvious which is which.

If Nancy really died in 1838, this woman is obviously someone else.  This enumerator didn't record occupations, at all.

4a.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #1 of 64):  Concord Twp., District No. 130, Ross Co., OH, Roll M432_725, p. 153A/305, 2242/2242, enumerated 11 Oct 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

Lewis & Sarah (BIRDSONG) ROSE are not Sarah ABBOTT's parents.  They are the parents of Sarah's brother-in-law, Joel Washington ROSE, husband of Sarah's sister, Hannah (McCAFFERTY) ROSE.

4b.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #21 of 64):  Concord Twp., District No. 130, Ross Co., OH, Roll M432_725, p. 163A/325, 2390/2390, enumerated 17 Oct 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Nancy McCafferty 70 F     2000 Pa
George     " 31 M   Farmer   Ohio

Samuel's children from his prior marriage appear to have gotten enumerated twice, once with their remarried father (above) and once with their step-grandmother, Nancy (SELLERS) McCAFFERTY.  In 1850, "Ia" was the abbreviation for Indiana, not Iowa, if that was, in fact, where she was born.

5.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #17 of 18):  London P.O., Paint Twp., Madison Co., OH, Roll M653_1004, p. , PN 122, 809/854, enumerated 30 Jul 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

Allott Samuel 60 M W Physician   176 Ohio

How did he suddenly become a physician at the age of 60?  Is this enumerator error?  Listed next to married son, John S. ALLOTT (æ 25, b. OH; physician).

7.  1880 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Widow Sarah ABBOTT (æ 73, b. OH/KY/PA) is living in the Village of Latham, Mifflin Twp., Pike Co., OH, p. 65A, with her son, John S. ABBOTT (æ 34, b. OH/OH/OH; physician), and his family.
