I am looking for anyone who can help me finding my grandmothers family tree. Thomas Abell was my grandmothers uncle who was in the tower of London. My grandmother said he left his initials in the tower. This happen during the first reign of the Queen of England (1533-1603) They went to the states to set up the Hudson Bay colony. My mother wasn't able to give me many dates so I need someones help. My grandmother was Mary Katherine Abell and she married Joseph s Minnis. He was an episcopal priest.Her father was a horse and buggy doctor in the Joliet,ill area. He has a plaque in the Christ church in Joliet Ill.
