Hi Jan,

I have both families having an Abigail and that's why I was confused. I checked on WorldConnect and there are several sites that list the Abigail, dau of Benjamin and Geesie BILL, as marrying Lionel UDALL. I didn't, however, check each site to verify their sources. That far back it's hard to find a paper trail, but I'm inclined to agree that it's more probable that it's the Abigail, dau of Samuel BILL and Mary (Mercy) HOUGHTON/HAUGHTON, who married Lionel. Abigail was definitely a popular name at the time, but does create confusion within same surname families.

Happy "people" hunting,
Valerie
