Looking for information about Abels in Germany around the area ofof the Rhine. My ancestors migrated in 1830's to the Americas. His name was Henry it may have been Heinrich and he changed it. I have been told he entered port at Penn. He was only 15 when he came here. He married Elizibeth Falendorf from the area of Baden. They settled in Macon GA. where he became a merchant.I have alot of information on one of his sons( which is my namesake, but not much on the other siblings. I know there was a Charles, Fredrick, William and a daughter name Aurelia.
Any information would be helpful. If I knew where to go in Germany that would be good also.
