become a state in 1816. Tradition claims the first settlers were John Dunn,
General Bartholomew, and the Beems who camein the fall of 1816, and Philip

Florenz ABRELL. Born 9 April 1849 in Umbaat (that is the best I can
do with the spelling), Alsace, France. This information came from his discharge
papers. He served in the civil war in the United States from 1862-1864.
He joined the 82 Reg't Illinois Infantry. That would have made him 13 years
old but the records say he was 20. This regiment was almost
exclusively of recent German immigrants. After the war he married
Margaretha Stephanie _. From this union Louise Marie ABRELL was born.
. She had only two brothers, but there were no male issue. She did have
three sisters. Although Florence came from Alsace, they were German speaking
people. (During the centuries Alsace was part of Germany) (4)
