I think my Abel family is somehow related to Charles.Things I know: Henry Abel, married to Mary Elizabeth Miller, died about 1888 and are buried in the Abel cemetery in Hetrick, Iowa.They were born in Germany.
Catherine Miller was living with Henry and Mary in 1870.I assume this is Mary's mother but have no proof.
Very close to the Henry and Mary tombstone in the Abel cemetery is a small very worn headstone that says Rosa & Rueban Miller.One died in 1875 and the other in 1879.
My grandfather, Robin Abel, grandson of Henry and Mary, was born south of DesMoines close to where the other Able cemetery is located.
Any comments on whether there is a relationship here?
