A SAD CALAMITY The Wife of Ex-Senator Lot Abraham Instantly Killed at Mt. Pleasant. Mt. Pleasant special.- A sad accident resulting in the sudden death of Mrs. Senator Abraham, startled our city yesterday morning. She was driving into the city from their farm, which is about three miles out, to attend church and consult a physician in regard to her mother who was quite feeble. Her horse when near the court house took sudden fright and started to run away and making a short turn threw her out with great violence on the hard macadamized street. She struck on her head with such force that several small stones went through the skull and she died almost instantly. She was a good driver and was alone at the time. She was a woman that was beloved by all who knew her and was of far more than ordinary intelligence. She had lived here since 1841, and was united in marriage to Senator Abraham in 1863. Besides her husband, she leaves four children to mourn her loss, three daughters and one son. She was a sister of John B. Alden, the book publisher in New York, and traced her decent from the Mayflower, and who was immortalized by Longfellow's poem, "Miles Standish." Her husband, Senator Abraham, it will be remembered, represented this county in the State Senate from 1882 to 1886 and is well known in G.A.R. circles all over the state.
