Death: 1835

Born about 1760 - perhaps earlier at the age of 18 (we think he was actually younger) he joined Captain William Reed's Company - part of Col. John Bailey's regt. of Minute-men, which marched on the alarm of April 19, 1775; his service of 1 week & 1 day; also, Capt. William Reed's co.served Gen. John Thomas's regt.; he mustered roll call dated Aug. 1, 1775; he enlisted April 27, 1775; service, 3 mos., 1 week, 5 days; also, company return dated Camp at Roxbury, Oct. 6, 1775; also, Capt. Edward Cobb's co., Col. Edward Mitchel's regt., Gen. Cushing's [p.713] brigade; service, 1 week 6 days; company marched from Abington to Bristol, R. I., Dec. 9, 1776, on an alarm; also, Capt. Edward Cobb's co., Maj. Eliphalet Cary's regt.; marched July 30, 1780; discharged Aug. 9, 1780; service, 11 days; company marched from Abington to Tiverton, R. I., on an alarm. This is all I have found so far - it is likely he served longer and with other companies and or regiments.

In the account or recordings of the headstones at this cemetery it is noted that there was a headstone found at the first visit by Mary Johnson McElhiney prior to her publishing the collection of Old Historic Cemetery's in 1935 Called "GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN" - that headstone was not found in 1970 or in 1988 or by my wife or I in 2011 - we strongly believe that headstone was of Bowles Abington and perhaps his wife Sarah Taylor.
