According to the U.S. Census, he lived in Patoka Twp., Dubois Co., IN in 1850. Major Henry F.

At the time of the 1870 & 1880 U.S. Censuses, Abel lived in Celestine, Hall Twp., Dubois Co., IN where he worked as a farmer.

In his post-war years, he was a member of Indiana G.A.R. Post #15 (Morgan Post) located in Petersburg, Pike Co., IN. His last name is mistakenly spelled "Able" in the G.A.R. post records.
