WHO IS ABNER ?

Back in the 1940's, Harold Bolch recorded the grave stone of Abner as:
Abner Bolch born 8-21-1817 died 1-26-1894 age 76 yrs 5 mo 5 days

There was an Abner Bolick from Caldwell County (30 Dec 1816-13 May 1909) who lived
his entire live in the Globe community of Caldwell County but they can not be the same person.

So who is Abner?
and who is Saloma?
