      !SOURCE: Email from Jean Vredenburgh (undisclosed at example dot net) to the Whipple Website, 15 Jan 2013. Email attachments: 1) Article on Abiel Gifford Howland in Cyclopedia of New Zealand (Canterbury Provincial District) published in 1904; 2) Photo of Abiel. Jean writes: "Abiel had 2 wifes first Emily then a wife in New Zeland. I do not think Abiel/Emily had any children. I am not sure why Abiel  left RI just before the out break of the CV war. Maybe Emily did not  want to leave RI.Abiel I believe made 2 trips back to RI in his early years and one of the trips his father Benjamin F Howland was the Captian of the ship that took him to NZ. Abiel was well know in the area (Christchurch) as a coachbuiler. Abiel Parents were Benjamin F Howland and Tabith Ellis."
