>> Descendants of Henry Abel Series

According to his tombstone in Rose Hill Cemetery, Henry Abel was born 15 February 1817 at Ebertzheim Rhein, Bavaria, Germany. He immigrated to the United States, arriving in New York in late Spring of 1834 – listed as age 18 on a ship manifest. About 17 months later, Henry came to Macon, Bibb County, Georgia. Approximately 4 years after his move, Mr. Abel married Elizabeth "Lizzie" Follendore. She, born 20 October 1826 in Baden, Germany, was just 16 years of age at the time.

Henry and Elizabeth Abel as a couple were a fixture in the city of Macon for more than fifty years. Though I am of no relation to this family, I have documented more than 240 of their descendants, concentrating primarily on the first 3 generations – through their great-grandchildren.

While I am attempting to follow a pattern in order to not miss a planned post, there is no particular order in which these "should" be read.
