Birth: 1752
Death: Jan. 5, 1776

In Memy of Mr. Robert Abelll of Rehoboth
who died Jan. Ye 5th 1776
in ye 24th year of his age.

"More than one Revolutionary hero who died in Brookline barracks found his last resting-place in Brookline Cemetery. Lieutenant Robert Abell was one; and he and two soldiers of a Connecticut company were probably the men who assisted in the siege of Boston and were quartered in the Benjamin Davis house, much to the discomfort of the excellent house- keeper, who used to tell in after years of their cutting up their rations of pork on her front stairs. The soldiers were subsequently removed to the
barracks on Parker's Hill." H. F. W., pp. 49 and 221.
