It i s believed that Indians killed Abel while scouting for th e Army in Nevada. James and his family moved back to Missou ri between 1866 and 1869 because their son Galles was bor n in MO about 1869. In the 1870 MO census it gave that Jame s's mother Jane was living with him and his family, his fat her had died by this time. I believe they were living on th e home place where Ebenezer, Jane and family had moved to f rom IL about 1855.
