I am still interested in hearing from anyone kin to this Ables or who knows someone who is. Re: Ables message #131. William F. Ables was the son of William Ables and Mary Vandegriff. The older William supposedly was killed during the Civil War (unconfirmed) and Mary later married Alfred Hill Slover in Tennessee and moved to Arkansas. Mary and William's two children were William Franklin and Elizabeth. William Franklin Ables married Ida Dell Dooley and theirchildren were: 1. Bertha, Married John Thomas Maye, no children. 2. Ethel, Married William Rector Cargile, Children were: Louise Cargile,b. 1915, Married Eberle Luther Byrum Mildred Cargile,b. 1918, Married .....Huffman Harold Cargile, b. 1920 Gladys Raye Cargile, died as baby Leo Cargile, b. 1923 Eugene Cargile, b. 1926 Charles Cargile, b. 1930 Jo Ann Cargile,b. 1932, Married ......Sorrells Billy Cargile, b. 1934 3. Floyd E. Ables, Married Hazel McAlister, children: Reba Dell Ables, b. 1923-24? McLeon Ables, b. 1924 Paul Edward Ables, b. 1934
As I said in message #131 I have pictures of William F. and of Bertha, Ethyl, and Floyd that I would like to pass on to their descendants. William and his sister Elizabeth were step-siblings of my grandfather Thomas J. Slover.
