PS I have just found Abraham's grave on FindaGrave.  He was buried in 1952 in Hebrew Memorial Park, Clinton Township, Macomb County, Michigan, USA - and the Hebrew inscription on his grave quite clearly shows names him as Abraham ben r. Joel

Abram and Abraham are both valid Hebrew names.  The name of our forefather Abraham was Abram until God changed it to Abraham.
