Abell's of Virginia.I have accessed information from Steve Jones, which confirmed research conducted by my father (Stanley Abell) and myself (Gail Abell Reel).My father's great grandfather was Elijah Abell (born 1833 in Prince William County).One son was William H. Abell (my father's grandfather).On William's headstone is info that his father was Elijah and mother Sarah Jones (my father has visited grave in Loudoun Middleburg VA).Elijah is in Cedar Run Cemetary but I think there is only a marker (I have not yet visited).Elijah's father was James Abel, whose father was William Abel, whose father was James Abel. Spelling of name has gone back and forth (Abel/Abell). My father currently lives in PWC.
I am looking for James Abell (born maybe l735 in PWC or St. Mary's Maryland).This is as far back as I have been able to go. I have tried to reach Steve Jones but have been unable to do so.
