Hoping to connect with ABEL UNDERWOOD's family.
Abel was born in GUILFORD COUNTY area in 1805. He married Abigail Ward in Rockingham County NC Dec. 3, 1834. He and his family left NC and settled in DALLAS ARK. just after 1850.
His children included:
George Washington b. 1836, married April 11, 1861 to Martha F. Bass.
** his sister had married Martha's dad, Peyton Bass Sr.
Elijah Vann b. 1838 d.1861 - he died during the Civil War at Camp Bartow, WV.
Frances Elizabeth, b. 1839 d. 1888, married Dec. 12, 1855 to Peyton M. Bass Sr. (second wife)
Nancy J b. ab.1842 m. either Aug 4 or Sept 23, 1859 to W A N Ryland (widowed on Aug 7, 1864)
Zachariah b. ab.1847
William K b. ab.1853
I believe Abel died in Dallas Co before 1870. Where is he buried? His wife Abby, widowed daughter Nancy Jane Ryland, and son William K. are found in the 1870 census living in Red River, Lafayette county, Ark.
Would love to confer with anyone researching this family. Will share all I have. Hoping to connect with researchers who want to solve the mysteries surrounding these Underwoods.
