The ABBOTTs of Salt Island and the SMITHs are related through marriage. James Flanigan SMITH of Salt Island was married to an ABBOTT-- Amanda Melvina, if my memory serves me correctly. They had either 18 or 19 children between the late 1850's and about 1893. One of their daughters, Victoria Belviana (I believe), married a son of Harding and Caroline THOMAS.
Florence THOMAS Fuentes aka "Teacher Florence"/"Dona Flor" was one of Victoria's children. Dona Flor died in the 1990's at about 93 years of age in San Juan, P.R.; her daughter, Dr. Sylvia Fuentes, was still living in San Juan the last I knew. However, she only had what info I had provided her. I'll try to find a copy of the info I had provided her.
