My Third Greatgrandmother's sister (in fact two.)married Abel's one married John F Abel and the other married William Abel.
Macon GA is close to Pike where one of her sisters lived and the other sister lived in Troup Co GA. As Pike, Monroe, and Troup counties are very close togather,also word in the family is their Father Jacob Reid lived with his daughters after retiring. first one then the other.I found Jacob living with his son-in-law and daughter Mary in Pike Co. GA. (William Wilkinson.) for an old person traveling, I would think in those days the daughters would live close togather.
Elizabeth married William Abel Nancy marriedJohnF Able This might be a connection Not sure Have to look at Macon Co. Mary in TX.
