There's no such thing as a "family crest". The crest is the stuff above the shield (the small lion and the torse he's standing on, in this case), so calling the full achievement a "crest" is wrong, and "family" is wrong, too, because in most jurisdictions -- notably including England and France -- heraldry belonged to individuals, and was passed down as property, to just one heir.
I see, originally where was Abraham Sallee Born.  My biological father is a Sallee.  I never knew him or his family.  I just trying to find out where they originate from.

Are you sure he was entitled to bear arms in the Kingdom of France or the Kingdom of England? If so, have you proof that these were his rightful arms?
