ABBEY, HARRY--Born in Potosi, MO. Abbey came to Galena 45 years ago. He was interested in mining a number of years with the late W. F. Sapp. In 1916 he organized the Diplomat Gravel Company, in partnership with the late C. W. Squires and the late R. A. Coles. Later he purchased the holdings of the two associates.

He maintained an office in the Citizen's State Bank building at Fifth and Main Streets.

He was a member of the A.O.U.W. and the Galena Elks Lodge.

Surviving are his widow, Mrs. Lucy Abbey, at the home; two daughters, Mrs. Raymond Swaney of Galena and Miss Roseanne Abbey, at home; three sons, Harry M. Abbey Jr., of Paola, Kan., and Dan Abbey and W. J. Abbey, both of Galena; a brother, John Abbey of Bismark, MO; a sister, Mrs. Maude Missey of St. Louis, and six grandchildren.
