My error. I was looking at two Different Anderson entries and conflated them. Mary who married Malachi Rhoades was daughter of Richard Carder not Robert Abell. Ugh. Sorry folks. That's what I get for working on two PGM folks almost simultaneously.
Abell-1228 and Abell-6 appear to represent the same person because: Same parents, same birthdate and place. No sources show specific death date on -1228. Death date on -6 of "after 1718" is supported by sources on -6. Please merge.
