Per Wayne Olsen:
In Kellogg family genealogy listed in "Colonial Families of the US", Stephen rather than Nathaniel is listed as father of Abigail. Excerpts:
Of Westfield, MA... listed as Ensign. 10 children, 4th is Abigail, 5th child was Deacon Daniel Kellogg, listed of Sheffield, MA. The deacon was one of the first deacons of the church first established in Sheffield; the deacon in Westfield, 13th May 1731 married Hannah Noble.
From "Genealogies of Hadley Families", compiled by Lucius M. Boltwood,1905. Republished by Genealogical Publishing Co, Baltimore, 1996.
Stephen also listed as father of Abigail, who was born Dec 27, 1702and married Benjamin Sheldon. Wife listed as LYDIA BELDING. 10 children listed.
From "Genealogical Notes", manuscript by Dewey in Westfield MA library:
Will of Steven Kellogg, Wfd weaver, Jun 2, 1722:
Wife Lydia and son Steven exec.

To 3 daus. Lydia, Abigail, Mercy 40 lbs apiece.
Later in same ref, lists children of Stephen (Lydia, Moses, Abigail, Daniel, Ephraim, Mary, Noah, Silas , and Amos). Details for Abigail suggest that she is not the direct line... "b. Dec 27, 1702, mar. intent .June 12, 1731 to Christopher Jacob Lawton of Springfield."
