DEATH OF FREDERICK ABEL
Frederick Abel closed his eyes in eternal slip last Monday morning at 6:30 after an illness of several weeks, aged 61 years. Mr. Abel had been sick for some time and his death was not unexpected.
Frederick Abel was born in Germany, January 27, 1837. He emigrated to this country with his parents when he was thirteen years of age, settling in the town of Schleswig, Manitowoc County.
When the flag of the United States was assaulted by armed foes he offered his services to his country and enlisted Aug. 21, 1862, in Company D, 27th Wisconsin Infantry. His regiment was sent to Columbus, Kentucky, and after three months was transferred to the Yazoo valley. After the surrender of Vicksburg his regiment was transferred to Helena, Arkansas. From there they marched to Little Rock, taking part in the capture of that city. Later he took part in the battle of Jenkins Ferry, where he was wounded and taken prisoner. He was in prison ten months at Tyler, Tex., being exchanged in February, 1865. Mr. Abel saw no more active service and was mustered out May 19, 1865, after almost three years of honorable and arduis service to his country and hardships and dangers of which we, of a younger generation, know nothing.
He was married to Margaret Loos. Shortly after his marriage he moved to the town of Meeme where he resided until 1889, when he moved to Brillion where he has since resided. He leaves a wife and five children to mourn his death. Two children have already preceded him to the Great Beyond.
Funeral services were held Wednesday of this week, Rev. E. J. Elser officiating. The GAR of which organization he was an honored member, attended at the grave. Interment took place at the Brillion cemetery. A large concourse of friends followed the remains to their last resting place, showing the esteem in which he was held by his neighbors who had known him so long. The bereaved family have the sympathy of all.
