About Lt. Preserved Abell

Remarks : Vital Records of Rehoboth,MA , 162-1896 - Arnold; The Abell family in America

The Abell family was friendly with King Philip before the war. King Philip would often visit their home, sitting in a chair later to be nick named "King Philips Chair". When the war broke out, King Philip sacked the village burning down 30 barns and 40 houses. King Philip sat in the chair from the Abell family home and watched the village burn. Afterwards, he then set fire to the chair itself but only scorched it a little. The chair is still in existance.

Served with Capt. Samuel Gallup's Company in the expedition against Canada in 1690. [NEHGR]
