Born in East Providence, Rhode Island, Abell learned the newspaper business as an apprentice at the Providence Patriot.

Abell and his descendants continued ownership of The Sun as a family business until 1910. Abell is noted as an innovative publisher in the newspaper business, making use of new systems and technology: pony express delivery of news from New Orleans, using the telegraph to transmit news from the first Mexican–American War and a President's speech to the Congress in Washington, D.C., and using the new rotary/cylinder printing press invented by Richard March Hoe.
