Abraham Garber b.1812 and wife Elizabeth b.1810

my line includes

Abraham S. Garber b. 1843

(Married to Ann Eliza Miller b. 1842)

I believe abraham's father to also be Abraham Garber b. 1812 and married to Elizabeth.

The problem I am having is nailing down which Abraham Garber and Elizabeth are the parents of my ancestor Abraham.

And who their parents are, as I've found if it is Abraham Garber b. 1812 and married to Elizabeth Jefferies, then I can find no further info on either of these people. And I can't find any solid info linking them to my Abraham.

 If this information appears correct let me know I might be able to help you find more information however I not sure I on the right line yet

My records show him born in Tennessee. I have trees in both familysearch and ancestry and I cannot make a third tree as the process is so tedious with wikitree as I have so many sources to input and I've done so much work on the other trees.

The issue I am having is linking Elizabeth stover as the mother of Abraham.   I thought it was her as well, and then another search gave me Elizabeth Jeffries? But I can link neither Elizabeth soidly to my Abraham.
I'm not sure I would put value on information found on an ancestry tree or family search tree unless it is sourced. I couldn't find nothing that would give me personally any theory of him being married to an Elizabeth Jeffries. There appears to be many Abraham Garbers possibly when you are more sure about the birth date of your Abraham Garbers will find something
