I believe that we are all wrong about Francis Abel marring an Isabel O'Conner. I met with a lady yesterday that has a lot of information on this family and she copied something for me yesterday and this is what it says... "John Abell, bornMarch 2 1791 in Chester Co Pa died july 7 1831 in Orange Co In. he was 40 y/4m/5d. buried in miller graveyard in NW Twp. his stone was made by Andrew Waldrip as a gift. he served in the war of 1812. Enlisted at Rogersville , Tenn july 19 1814, he served as a private in Lt. Dick Alexander's Co. 39t Reg't of the US Ingantry. he married Jane Carey a dau of Ebenezer Palmer. she was aparentley born Oct 13 1803and died on Oct 26 1851. she is buried in the Edwards family cem. in NW Twp. Their children were: Mary Ann Abel born June 17 1822 Ebenezer Palmer Carey Abel Dec 28 1823 George Washington Abel Aaug 18 1825. Soldier of the mexican war. Married Julia Ann Harvey Boone.(dau. of Johm Boone) William Joseph Abel july 28 1827 (went to Cal. for the gold rush) Margaret Jane Abel july 28 1827. (twins. m. peter G. Lyons) Isabel O'Conner Abel Feb 17 1830 a Barnett W Jenkins Elizabeth Jane Abel dec 19 1831 m David Batt Burton " Anyways it says a little farther down the page that the father of Jonh was Conrad Abel and that John married Isabel O'Conner and she was a Baroness from Ireland. I have the name of their childrern. if anyone has any other information then please feel free to email me b/c i am just a little bit confused. i believe that the lady i spoke to yesterday would have the right info b/c she is in charge of the genealogy research here and i feel that she is right. if anyone can help me i would greatly appreciate it.
