"...Abel Trueblood was chosen overseer 8-4-1757, probably of the Trueblood MM; and again on 7-17-1771, overseer of the Symons Creek MM. On 11-18-1772, he, with Caleb Trueblood, Joseph Henley, Aaron Morris, Sr., and Josiah Bundy, was named to attend the Court Martial. (The object of the Court Martial is not known - - John Lancaster?)

In 1754, Abel Trueblood was on the Tax List as paying poll for one white person and 1 black person. In 1779, he is listed with the Quakers on the Tax List for Pasquotank County: "...3 tracts: 380 acres...Amt. of Assmt. & rated property: 2007 (pounds). In the 1790 Census, Abel Trueblood has no slaves. the colored poll of 1779 was no doubt a freedman. In 1799 Tax List, Abel Trueblood, Sr. has "120 acres, no free polls, no black polls, Tax: 0 pounds; 3 shillings; 2 pence." He is not mentioned in the Census of 1800 as by this time he had moved to the vicinity of Little River in Perquimans County.
