      Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors in the War of the Revolution (Records 11,250-11,274), Pg 840
      Beal, Abel, Hingham or Cohasset. Private, Capt. Peter Cushing's Co., Col. Solomon Lovel's regt.;
      payroll for three days service in Aug., 1777, at Hull.

      Abel was an American Revolution soldier and enlisted in 1775 in Lieutenant Obadiah Beal's detachment of guards. He was listed on a roll made from December 12, 1775 to April 3, 1776 - three months and 24 days. The detachment was stationed at Hull Beach, Mass. On December 14, 1776 he enlisted as a Private in Captain Peter Cushing's Company of Colonel Solomon Lovel's regiment. This company assembled at Hull, Mass. and served four days. Private Beal was also on the payroll of Captain Thomas Nash's Company of Colonel David Cushing's regiment for three days of service in August, 1777, again in Hull.
      (Boulder Genealogy Society, Vol 10 A3, Aug 1978)

      Abel's will was dated March 2, 1805 and proved May 14, 1805. It provided for his wife and unmarried daughter, Deborah. His wife's name was shown as Elizabeth. (This can not be a third wife because his widow, Susannah, lived until 1810. Perhaps it was an alternate name for Susannah since he also had a daughter with that name). Daughters Susannah received $5., Ruth $15. and Abrigail $10. His oldest daughter , Celia, received land and was responsible for paying these amounts to her sisters. Three of his sons also received cash: Stowers $15., Micah $20. and Abel $2. (Dose this smsll amount reflect the fact that the first born son left home in his early 20's and went to live in Nova Scotia?). The remainder and bulk of the estate went to his son Seth. An inventory of the estate established a total value of $2,438.30 which has the purchasing power of $40,400. in todays money.
