Abel, Utt, Hillis, Bolin, Zimmerlee, Bradshaw, Gaunt....... and quite a few others, as you probably have experienced.
The primary lines start with Francis Abel who married Isabel (or possibly Rebecca) O'Connor.He is from England, she from Ireland.Marriage in late 1700's, possibly in Pennsylvania.
Utt line is from Henry Utt, Germany circa 1600.There is a repeat of the names Henry, and Jacob within the family, if that helps.
We have traced many angles of the above families, and several others, but have lost the scent at the Atlantic Ocean.Anybody with information on the above names, especially with anything in the "old" countries, please Email me.If any names ring a bell with you, Email me for a Gedcom of the tree from our side.
