A. H. ABRAMS, LAWRENCE PIONEER, DIES

LAWRENCE - Albert H. Abrams, 72, pioneer fruit farmer and a Lawrence merchant for more than 40 years, was found dead in bed at his farm home four and a half miles southeast of Lawrence Saturday morning.

He was born in Paw Paw township on February 27, 1870, the son of a Civil war veteran, James E. Abrams and wife, early pioneers. He was married in 1895 to Nellie Wakeman, his brother-in-law, Rev. Edwin H. Bradfield, performing the ceremony.

Mr. Abrams is survived by his wife, and four brothers and one sister. The brothers are Archie of Lawrence, Richard of Illinois, James of Florida and Harold of Meadville, Pa. The sister is Mrs. Helen Jones of Centerville, Mich.

Funeral rites for him were held Monday at the farm home, the Rev. Edwin H. Bradfield officiating, and burial was in Prospect Lake cemetery.

Lawrence business houses were closed during the funeral out of respect to one of the oldest businessmen of the village who, assisted by his wife, operated his grocery and shoe store up to the time of his death.
