Abbot, Abiel (2)
Abbot, Abiel D.D., a Unitarian minister, born at Andover, Mass., Aug. 17, 1770. He graduated at Harvard, 1792, and was pastor at Haverhill from 1794 to 1803, and at Beverley from 1803 until 1826. His health failing, he spent the winter of 1827-8 in Charleston, S. C., and in Cuba, but died just as the ship reached quarantine at New York, June 7, 1828. He was a man of taste and culture, and an eloquent preacher. His Letters from Cuba were published after his death (Boston, 1829, 8vo); and also a volume of Sermons, with a Memoir by Everett (Boston, 1831, 12mo). — Sprague, Unitarian Pulpit, p. 309 sq.
