I need information on the following family listed in the 1860 Tallahatchie, MS census
Ruben H. Abel age 49 Mary M. Abel age 44 Willam age 23 James age 22 John age 20 Marilda J. age 17 Henry C. age 15 George G. age 10 Dewitt C. age 6 Clara C. age 5 Thomas age 4 Mary E. age 2
I also found a marriage of a Reubin Ables who married a Mary Richey on Sept. 22, 1834 in Bibb Alabama.Could this be the same Ruben and Mary as above? From the above census it appears this family has lived in TN., AL., AR., and MS.
I think John may be my great grandfather.My John F. Abel joined the 21st Tallahatchie Rifles Company F. Stories of my John F. Abel are told that he was sent out west to fight Indians and that is why my great grandmother was able to draw a pension after his death. My Abel family ended up in Shelby and Fayette Counties in TN. According to a census taken in TN. my John was married twice.I do not know who his first wife was, but his second wife was Frances Kelley.I know we also had a cousin named Gertrude Abel who married a man by the last name of Henrichson and they lived in AL.She died Jan. 1974. A census found on Gertrude shows she was born in TX.Her fathers name was Tom.I would love to hear from anyone concerning the above people. Thanking you in advance Debbie
