I would just like to add something to this forum about the James Ables family on the 1860 census of Lawrence, Ark. The parents are James Ables and Elizabeth McCaa Ables.It list all the children in that household as Ables, but they weren't all Ables. As I recall it list James, Samuel, Caroline or Margaret, John, Joseph and Sarah. James, Samuel and Caroline were McCaa's. On the 1870 census the Ables children are living in the Samuel McCaa household and listed as McCaa's. On that census John, Joseph and Sarah Ables are the nephews and niece of Samuel. The parents of the Ables children apparently died. John Ables married Margaret Qualls in Ark. Samuel McCaa married Nancy Fore in Ark. Caroline married Shelby Honey in Ark. Her dau. Julia married Horton.
