Note:

AMAZIAH A. ABELL, funeral director, Warren Centre, is a native of Warren township, this county, and one of the noted Abell family, who are related to the great Baltimore publisher Arunah S. Abell. Our subject was born February 19, 1835, near where he now resides, and is a son of Daniel and Mary (Allyn) Abell, of Rhode Island and of English descent. The father, a farmer by occupation, came to Bradford county in 1828, and settled on the farm Amaziah now owns, at which time it was wild and drear and desolate, and Capt. Abell valiantly went to work to clear up his farm and make a home in the wilderness. He was for many years a captain in the militia; was a man of public spirit, much respected by all who knew him, for many Years held public offices, and died in 1877, ripe in years and wisdom; his widow died in 1882. They had four children: Catherine (Mrs. Dr. D. S. Pratt), of Towanda; Freelove E. (Mrs. John B. Russell ) ) who removed to Wisconsin, where she died February 4, 1878; Amaziah A., the subject of this sketch, and Dr. Daniel T., of Missouri. Amaziah A. Abell was reared in his native place, attended the neighboring- schools and then became a student at the Susquehanna Collegiate Institute, Towanda, where he completed his education and engaged in farming. He inherited the old homestead, and now has one hundred and twelve acres of land, but resides in the village of Warren Centre, in his elegant new residence. He was married in Nichols, N. Y., in 1867, to Helen Ball, only child of E. B. and Almira Ball, natives of New York and Pennsylvania, respectively. To this marriage have been born two children : Guy Walter and Chat-lie Leonard. -Mrs. Abell is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Mr. Abell is a Freemason, and in politics is a Republican
