Charlotte Helen Abbott was born in 1844 and died in 1921. She was a member of the Punchard High's first graduating class in 1859. Both a teacher and a dressmaker, her real love was documenting the families of early Andover History. In fact, for 25 years she wrote a column in the Andover Townsman; some of these articles have been added to the Andover Massachusetts page on the Essex County USGenWeb Project. See the link below. Also, below is a list containing the dates that her column appeared in the Townsman.

She authored the Abbott Genealogies,a compiled genealogies of the first Andover families. The multi-volume set kept in the Andover Room at Memorial Hall Library was typed by Marion LeMaire.
