Hope this will help you some and pass this around as I believe most is reasonably accurate at this point. There are a few dangerous assumptions - In the early censuses, relationships were assumed. Birth years were carelessly estimated as census records are not very accurate on ages anyway.


Descendancy Narrative of William Ables (6687)

I. William1 Ables (6687) was born in 1815 at Tennessee. He married Hetty Unknown (6847). Before 1850, we can not say for sure where William is. In the 1840 Census, there is a John W Ables, who is the correct age and has a1 year old son who may have passed away. This John W does not reappear in Lincoln County. It may be possible that he changed to William. He may have done this after the William in the 1840 census may have died. ThisWilliam could be the father as well, but a Charles Ables listed in the 1830census may have been William's father. There were no Ables listed in the Lincoln County 1820 census. In 1850, William is a tailor and his 5-yearold son Thomas has already attended school. He owns no real estate, and is obviously living near the center of town. He and Hetty Unknown (6847) appeared on the census of 27 Aug 1850 at 8th District, Fayetteville, Lincoln County, Tennessee.

In 1860 William is a hired laborer living in a dwelling he did not own with his estate valued at $75. His wife Mary is a weaver and his 16 year old son is an apprenticed tanner. The difference between the 16 year old Thomas and his one year old sister, Martha, suggests the possibility that Mary was not the mother of Thomas. William's neighborhood was interesting as he lived near a carpenter shop, a show shop, tailors, and a boarding house with a physician, lawyer, and professor of instrumental music, teachers, livery stable, cabinet worker man, and a wagon maker.

He and Mary Jane Elizabeth Rebecca Dempsey (6686) appeared on the census of 14 Aug 1860 at 8th District, Fayetteville, Lincoln County, Tennessee.

Hello,
My ancestor was John B Ables or Abel born about 1793 in Abbeville dist SC. There were five Able brothers born in the late 1790's and the early 1800's and they were all in eastern Tenn by 1818 and probably before that. I don't know what county they lived in when they went to Tenn. I think their father was named Joseph but I am not sure. John B Abel married aRhoda or Roxanne Johnson in 1818 in I believe Knox co Tenn. All the Able brothers went to eastern Alabama in the early 1830's. In your research about your Ables ancestors did you ever see this Abel family? Thanks, Ross
