There has been some confusion in regards to Abbey, there were actually two brothers
S. Abbey and J. Abbey, their full and real names are Salomon Van Abbe (1883-1955) and Joseph Van Abbe
Their work was often not prefixed by their initial to further confuse things
Salomon also worked under the name C. Morse
