He was a Confederate, and was killed at Lawrence, KS during a raid with Quantrill's Raiders.  He was the only one killed during this raid.  It is reputed that he was drunk during this raid, and this may have had something to do with his demise.

He had a brother named Willis.  Willis was with Larkin in 1860 when the Presidential election was held at Pleasant Hill, MO.  Larkin wanted to kill a man named D. P. Houghland who voted for Lincoln, and Willis held his arm and kept him from killing him.

Abel, his wife Selina, his daughter Julia, and his grandson Donald went to the woods, between Davis and Sulphur, OK,  to find trees to cut, sometime in the 1940's.  The children went to the creek bank, while Abel went to search for decent trees.  Soon Abel came and said to the children "You kids get back in the car" in such a strange voice that everyone knew something was wrong.  They went home, and as soon as they were there, Abel laid down.  Selina told the children he was very sick.  He was so sick that the medicine man came to see him, to help him.  Abel later told Selina that on that day in the woods, he seen a hairy creature.  The creature mimicked his moves.  Everytime Abel would turn his head, so would the creature.  It was not long before the story got around, and those particular woods were checked out.  The place where the creature had stayed was found, as evidenced by laid down matted grass, with many strange hairs.

Abel only saw one particular medicine man in his lifetime.  Abel had arthritis.  He was bled by the medicine man, which helped to relieve his pain.  The medicine man would get a piece of glass, and cut the back of Abel's neck to allow the bleeding, and this relieved the pain.

Abel was about 8 years old when the Little People came.  He was "charmed away" as he called it.  He heard a chicken one day, with continued peeps, and he followed the sound.  The sound continued, so he continued following, and he got further and further from home.  His mother seen him leaving, and knew what was about to happen.  But she called to Abel anyway, but he did not answer or respond in any way.  She said it was like he was in a trance.  Abel was gone for about a week, before coming home.  When he did return home, he was very unclean.  He said the Little People made him eat lizards, snakes, and bugs.  He then had the gift of prophecy or foresight, which he proved many times over the years.  He continually knew when something was going to happen before it ever did, including the time his daughter Ruby was struck with appendicitis and rushed to the hospital.  He awoke in the middle of the night and told his wife, Selina, that something was wrong with Ruby.  He dressed, and was preparing to leave, when the sheriff knocked on his door to inform him that the hospital had called and that Ruby had appendicitis and was not expected to make it.  His gift of foresight was very strong.  According to his daughters, there were many instances over the years in which Abel proved this gift of prophecy.  His daughter, Julia, said that the episodes with the Little People and the gift of prophecy was very common in those days.

Abel's first wife is rumored to have been Lela Gilbert, though there is no proof of this.
