Hi Helen, I am descended from Meredith Abel's sister, Elmira Jane Abel. Is your husband a descendant of Meredith? I also don't have much about on Meredith's family or Adiline other than what I have posted at this site: http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/m/e/l/Duane-Melton-CA/index.htmlhttp://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/m/e/l/Duane-Melton-CA/index.html You can visit and check out the names index and find what I have. I do have more info on descendants of Meredith's siblings and his ancestors. You can send me an email at or let me know your email address to exchange information. I am interested in learning anything you might know about Meredith's family.
