Thanks for reply, however, I believe the Abel book you are referencing to and your Abel line is different than mine. My line is from Johann George Abel(Ebell) and Catherine Roller from Germany to Loudoun Co., Virginia. The book is titled: Abel family History: the descendants of George Abel, a german immigrant who settled in Loudoun County, Virginia/by Richard Michael Armstrong. Also, I have just found a source for the book. Good luck on your research.
