Glasco Sun, Aug. 8, 1885, page 1:
Last Monday evening the sad intelligence was brought to town that William Abbott was drowned. He went after his cattle in the pasture, which was cut off by the back water from the river, and had to cross a narrow sink in which the water was eight or ten feet deep. The horse in swimming the water threw him off and returned without him. Mr. Missel hurried around as fast as he could and gave notice of the accident. People gathered there and after the heavy shower in the forepart of the evening was over succeeded in securing his body. He was buried by the Grand Army Post on Wednesday. Deceased was forty-five years old; settled in this township in 1868, and by his many qualities won the friendship and esteem of all. He leaves a sorrowing wife and four children to mourn his untimely death. Mr. Abbott was since his youth a working member of the M.E. Church, and was one of its soundest pillars at the time of his death.
