Vance, Thanks for the information on Richard and Robert Abrahall. I ran into many references to Robert when I first looked for Richard Abrell/Abrill. It's my recollection that Richard, father of Mary Abrell who married John Mead, died in Frederick Co., Va ca 1752. I would estimate his birth ca 1680-1700. Richard's son John was stated to be the heir of Richard Abrell in several deeds in Frederick Co., Va in the 1750's. Based on Quaker references, I've tried to connect Richard or his wife to a Chambers Family with no success. Richard or his wife seem to be connected to the Ross and Barret Families. I don't have my notes handy but I recall Alexander Ross and Arthur Barrett both married daughters of Thomas Chambers in Pennsylvania.
