TABBOT ... from Maine!
Posted by: William Wallace Tabbot (ID *****8027) Date: March 21, 2009 at 13:04:02

My name is spelled ...TABBOT... (not Tibbets as in this forum).

We can barely trace our family at all! ... All we can find are the family members that we personally knew. ...

We know we are from Brunswick, GA and Jacksonville, FL. The first ...TABBOT... to come to Brunswick, GA was my great great grandfather. All my family knew him except me because he died before I was born.

He came to Georgia from Maine. ... We know this, but we can not trace any ...TABBOT... related to him beyond this.

Can anyone please HELP?! ...

Here is as far back as I can go:

I am William Wallace Tabbot b. 1963 Spartanburg, SC ...

My father is Milton LePrade Tabbot b. 1927 Brunswick, GA ...

My grandfather was Eugene Stillman Tabbot, Jr. b. 1902 Brunswick, GA d. 1982 Spartanburg, SC ...

My great grandfather was Capt. Eugene Stillman Tabbot, Sr. b. 1874 Brunswick, GA d. 1960 Brunswick, GA ...

My great great grandfather was Capt. James William Tabbot b. 1835 Maine (possibly Washington County) d. 1906 Brunswick, GA (his father and mother both born in Maine) ...



There is some thought that at some point while in Maine our name may have been spelled ...TIBBETTS, TIBBITS, TEBBUT, TABBUT, TABBUTT, TABBOTT... That's why I'm here seeking your help.

Does anyone know?

If this is the case, then we may have come to Maine from Massachusetts because of the fact that prior to 1820, Maine was actually York or Yorkshire County, Mass. Maine did not become a state until 1820. Hence, it was a part of Massachusetts until that time.

Can anyone help me trace my family or at least point me in the right direction?

I welcome everyone's thoughts on this. The more input I can get the better! ...


Thanks for all your help,

William Wallace Tabbot


You may post here but please feel free to e-mail me at as well. ... Thanks again!
