Lamb-320 and Lamb-5629 appear to represent the same person because: Same person by parents and most dates. It appears Lamb-5629 should be merged into Lamb-320 which has more complete and sourced information. In most primary source records I have seen the first name spelled Abiel however it does a few times appear as Abial.
