Yes, Gilead had an Abigail.

The key evidence of ancestry comes from a deposition made by Gilead Hunt and his wife:

“Sarah/Celia/Celetje Lasson b. ca. 1760 m. after banns registered 21 Nov 1778, Reformed Dutch Church, New Hackensack, [New York], Gilead Hunt of East-Chester County (sic), son of Ruben Hunt and ____, b. ca. 1754 (said he was “near 55 years of age” in 1809, Eastchester, Westchester Co. Children (Hunt): Peggy, Abigail, Simeon, Moses, John, James, Polly, Sally, Abraham, William”

“The examination of Ceclia Hunt on 18 April 1809, and of Gilliad Hunt on 8 Sept 1809, both said she was the daughter of Simeon Lawson of Poughkeepsie (Record of the overseers of the Poor, 1807-1815, Poughkeepsie, Dutchess Co, page nos. illegible ). It is possible that she was the daughter of (no. Simeon3, the son of Isaac2; however no marriage record of children have been found for him.

The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, 2000, Volume 131, page 55 (footnotes). Records of the Overseers of the poor may be found in Adriance Memorial Library, Poughkeepsie, NY.

I have written the Adriance Library and they did a lookup but could not find this enrty. (Somebody help! Grin!)

Gilead is the son of Reuben Hunt and wife Unknown. Reuben was son of Moses Hunt of Eastchester, Westchester County, NY. Sometime around 1750, Reuben migrated to Kakiat in the Precinct of Haverstraw in Orange County (now Rockland County.

I have much, much more on Reuben Hunt, likely father of Ruth Hunt who married Loyalist William Secord and went to Canada as part of the 1783 Spring Fleet.
