Mr. and Mrs. Abbott came to Dinsmore Township in November, 1836, and settled on the farm in section 6, on which they have since resided. He has made farming his vocation, and now owns a good farm of 162 acres, on which he has conducted the business of farming with success. He reared a family of six children, viz., Catharine, Sarah A., Daniel W., Eli, Mary J., and Margaret, one of whom is now dead, viz., Mary J.
