      HE WAS A METHODIST MINISTER IN COFFEE COUNTY, ALABAMA IN 1850.

      ACCORDING TO ONE SOURCE, ABRAM AND HIS FAMILY MOVED TO ALABAMA FROM

      ABRAHAM FANNIN AND HIS FAMILY EVIDENTLY MOVED TO ALABAMA RIGHT AFTER
      1833 TO CLAIM LAND THAT HAD BEEN CEDED BY THE CREEK INDIAN NATION.

      THE POWER OF THE CREEK INDIANS HAD BEEN BROKEN AT THE BATTLE OF
      HORSESHOE BEND, FOUGHT MARCH 27, 1814, AT THE GREAT BEND IN THE
      TALLAPOOSA RIVER. THIS DEFEAT FORCED THE CREEK INDIANS TO SIGN TREATIES

      JURISDICTION OVER THE ALABAMA REGION CEDED BY THE CREEKS IN THE INDIAN
      SPRINGS TREATY AND FORBID HUNTING AND TRAPPING THEREIN BY THE
      INDIANS.

      IN THE 1832 TREATY THE CREEK INDIANS HAD AGREED TO MOVE TO INDIAN
      TERRITORY, AND THE REMOVAL ACTUALLY TOOK PLACE BETWEEN 1836 AND 1840.

      WITH THE EXTINGUISHMENT OF INDIAN TITLES, LANDS WERE MADE AVAILABLE TO
      THE INFLUX OF WHITE LAND-SEEKERS FROM NORTH AND SOUTH CAROLINA AND GEORGIA.

      BETWEEN 1780 AND 1790. HE PROBABLY DIED IN DALE COUNTY, ALABAMA, BETWEEN
