Hi Mr Gaddy
You had mentioned that you were not sure the Thomas M Abel who died in 1918 in Walker co Al was the same Thomas M Abel who is listed in the 1900 Fayette Co al census. The 1900 Fayette Co Al census lists his date of birth as March of 1832. I have seen his year of birth as 1838 many times but I have thought for some time that he was born 1832-1833. He lived 85 years 4 months. That would make his year of birth 1833, one year off. I believe the 1867 loyalty oath said 1833 but someone might have misread it and thought it was 1838. So I think they are one and the same. Do you know if he was living with one of his children?
Also I found an interesting article on the internet. I found a request for a pension where Thomas M Abel list being from Elk, Alabama. I typed in Google.com and then I typed "Elk Alabama" and there was an article about Elk Alabama which was also named Falls city Alabama. Very interesting. Thanks Ross
