“Abel, Elijah, the only colored man who is known to have been ordained to the Priesthood, ...he was ordained an Elder March 3, 1836, and a Seventy April 4, 1841, an exception having been made in his case with regard to the general rule of the Church in relation to colored people.... In Nauvoo he was intimately aquainted with the prophet Joseph Smith... In 1883, as a member of the Third Quorum of Seventy, he left Salt Lake City on a Mission to Canada, during which he also performed missionary labors in the United States. Two weeks after his return he died, Dec. 25, 1884, of debility, consequent upon exposure while laboring in the ministry in Ohio. He died in full faith of the gospel.”
