Caleb Abell was born in Orange County, Virginia on about 3 Mar 1744, but the date of his birth is uncertain. Caleb was very likely a son of Richard Abell and Ann ( Stringfellow ) Abell.
Emanuel Jones was born before 1692, likely in Wales, and immigrated to Chester County in the Pennsylvania Colony before 1720, when he first appears on tax lists for Whiteland Township (307). He resided in Charlestown Township of Chester County until his death in about 1757.
