Yes, indeed we are related. Abram Abbs was the older brother of my ancestor, Eli Abbs. Abram and two brothers, Tom and Eli came here from England, and lived in the Arlington heights area. My great-grandfather Eli had 8 children, my grandfather Archie among them. We lived in Chicago. I have quite a bit of information on this branch of the family. Abram's wife was Lydia Rush. They had 6 children: Walter, George, Clara, Ernest, Nettie, and one unnamed infant, possibly stillborn. Contact me privately if you would like more details.
