|Birth: ||Jul. 12, 1812|
|Death: ||Dec. 2, 1871|
There seems to be a difference in dates of birth. I also have 13 Jul 1811 as a baptismal date from the Rev. Robert McDowall Baptisms in Sidney Township, Ontario.
Abel Gilbert died at Weston. He was born in Hastings, Canada, Aug 12, 1812, came to Illinois in 1831, thence to Independence, Mo in 1838 and to Weston in 1839. In 1851 he engaged in the Salt Lake City trade, and made many trips across the plains. In his mercantile ventures, he sometimes made out largely, and sometimes lost. While he left little property to distribute to his children at his death, he was able to give them finished educations, and promising starts in life. He was an enthusiastic Mason, and all his sons inherited his love of the mystic art.
