I have since, my early days of research in which I depended upon what I could obtain from personal sources as well as books, determined that Abel was not necessarily b. in Rehoboth; the VRs of same are not on internet, and there is only one Abel, b. born. 1669; the rest are named Abiel, No date of 1773 for any of them. So place of birth and parents still unknown unless someone has found this info.and has posted it ?????
