Banker, Politician. At age 27, began a triple career practicing law, farmer/rancher, and banking in Bridgewater, South Dakota. Political aspirations led Abel to the mayorship of Bridgewater, its alderman and city attorney; for many years president of the board of education. In 1888, he assumed a trusteeship of the Sioux Falls Penitentiary, appointed by Governor Arthur C. Mellette. In 1902 Abel rose from McCook County on the republican ticket, elected to the South Dakota State Senate by a substantial majority. Re-elected again in 1904 to the same seat, Abel this time extended his majority over democratic opposition. One year later, 1905, he removed his family to Huron, there to begin a successful law practice and business career. Abel again served on the local board of education, installed shortly as president of Huron College. By 1907 he was president of City National Bank, serving the farming communities of Beadle County. Elected South Dakota Lt. Governor in Nov. 1912, having received the largest to date June primary majority for that office. Served as Lt. Gov. for two years. Died in Long Beach, California.
