Events of Red Dead Redemption 2
In 1907, John Marston - under the guise "Jim Milton" - begins to work at Pronghorn under the guide of Abe and the ranch foreman Tom Dickens. During John's stay, Abe shows him around the ranch and assists him in milking cows.
When the Laramie Gang and its leader harass the ranch one day, Abe gets saved by Marston. After Marston defeats the Laramie gang's leader, he instructs Abe with informing Geddes that they will return, before riding off the ranch. Abe then thanks Marston for his help.
Later that night, Abe helps Marston and Tom Dickens in repelling a Laramie gang attack, and the three are successful. When they arrive back at the ranch, John asks Abe to stay up just in case there is any more trouble, and to fire a rifle three times if he needs help.
Over the next few months, Abe continues working at the ranch. He is seen assisting John with various jobs on the ranch during the latter's time as a worker. After Marston formally moves away from Pronghorn Ranch and purchases his own land at Beecher's Hope, Abe is not seen again; it is presumed that he continues working at Pronghorn Ranch as a hand.
