I ran across some Abbes in Texas birth and death records I wasn't familiar with. Blanche Abbe L. b. b-4-1913 Colorado CountyNatalie Marie Abbe Colorado Cty. Lorine Jr. b.11-12-1916 Colorado Cty. and Charity Abbe Death index 1903-1940 3-16-1926 Kaufman Cty. Seem there was some connection to Kansas, it has been a while though.They were not my branch of Abbes' Im ptetty sure. Hope that helps a little.
