Re: Abram Ancestry
In Response To: Abram Ancestry ()
I am an Abram and also concerned about where the Abram name originated. Maybe someone has the answer. I was thinking it was a name taken from bible.
Your family of Abrams connect with mine ( the Boynton Abram family). Henry Gaines that married Margaret Abram, was the brother of my great grandmother Lucinda (Gaines) Abram. Lucinda was married too Boynton Abram, Chickasaw freedmen, cc#489. Margaret Gaines can be found on cc#7, Chickasaw freedmen. Also Margaret was the sister of Ed Abram that married Amanda (Stevenson) Abram. Amanda is on the Chickasaw by blood roll, cc#610.
I have always wondered who Charley Abram's parents were (I have never been too sure). It seems that the Abram familiies intermarried with each other.
Maybe we can help each other for better understanding.
