I remember my grandfather telling me William Abraham was his great uncle. Can anyone give me any details on his family tree, particularly his siblings?

Ebenezer Abraham's uncle was William Abraham. I would like some family information on Henery Abraham born 8th June 1827. The brother to William Abraham. His father was Thomas Abraham.

Does anyone know whether a Miss Abraham who was closely related to Mabon married a Mr Lewis I had up until recently believed she was his sister but have been informed that he had no sisters. I know that he was the youngest of four brothers though any help would be very much appreciated.
