Franklin Scott Co., VA -- > Johnson Co., KY

I'm working on one of our Franklin branches and have this Abel documented:

Abraham Abel "Abe" Franklin
Birth Jul 1833 in Scott county, Virginia
Death 22 Oct 1920 in Johnson county, Kentucky

Some online trees at ancestry list him as a son of Abel Franklin 1797, NC -1878 Johnson Co., KY, but no one has any proof or documention of this and ancestry trees are NOTORIOUS for folks just 'copying' others trees to add to their own, thereby propagating erroneous information all over the web (why I abhor ancestry trees and never use them except to get ideas for places to look for documentation)

Does anyone have Abel b.1833 in their info anywhere and if so do you have documentation on his parents (i.e. will/probate etc) you can share?
