I don't know anything about the Abel's in WA/OR and am doing some research myself. I am trying to find some info on my father, goes by Jim, and other children that he's had. I know the he grew up in Pendleton, OR and lived in Bend, OR between 1988 and 1990. Had an uncle, Walt(er) Abel, that lived in WA somewhere, but only seen once when I was very young.
I found this website after doing a search and have found it very interesting.Other sites I have been too only frustrated me with no results.Thank you in advance.
