Welcome to Abel ...

So far, we have found very little information about Abel. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Abel to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Abel - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Abel, please Contact Us.


While we don't have the exact location of Abel, we believe that it would have been located within present day Smith County<2>.

Adding Abel to Our Gazetteer ...

As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.

Our notes show that the earliest dated mention that we've found for Abel was on a map titled Map of Mississippi (from Rand McNally, 1911).

For more details about the above, see References and Mentions for Abel on our Genealogy Page.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Abel, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Mississippi's counties, including Smith, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
