Notes for Joel Abel (Spouse 1)
He died without a Will. He was survived by a wife and several children. The ìHistory of McLean County, Illinoisî states that he ìwas cut down in the prime of lifeî. What exactly that means is unknown. Joel apparently died while in financial difficulty. There was a judgment placed against him in 1824 and another in 1832. The two creditors fought over collecting on their judgments in court, and the case went to the Ohio Supreme Court.
