Joe, My gggrandfather was Joseph Abel born 26 Dec 1801 in Alabama. His son,William Frank was in Winn Parish in Louisiana in 1860. Joseph and wife Mary, must have moved there as they are listed in the 1870 LA. census along with Frank's children. His wife had died before then. Frank moved to Rapides Parish and died there. Family history says that Joseph returned to Itawamba County, MS. after 1870 and died there. I cannot find any evidence of his grave so maybe the one you located in Holmes County was him. If you find further evidence, contact me. Thanks, Faye.
