Remarkable Family - Mr. George Conway Abraham, who lies quite ill at his home in the East End, is a member of a family remarkable in many respects. The parents, Francis Abraham and Jestine Mallory, came to this State from King William county, Virginia, when Indians constituted the greater part of the population and settled on the farm still occupied by the family. To them were born 11 children all of whom lived until the youngest was 45 years old. The wife was the first to die. Six of the family are living whose combined ages are 465 years making an average of 77 1/2 years. Five of them live in one house, all enjoying single blessedness. Five of the eight daughters married and their husbands were all house carpenters. George C. and William F. served in the Confederacy under Morgan and came home without a scratch, except small pox marks contracted at Fort Douglas. The old gentlemen are very proud to say that not one of the descendants of the family ever cast a republican vote.

Abraham - Another good old Confederate soldier has gone to his reward. Mr. George Abraham, of Co. B, Capt. Tom Shanks' Co, Grigsby's regiment, Duke's brigade and Morgan's command, sleeps his last sleep, after fighting his last and hardest battle, that of earning a living in his old age. Mr. G. W. DeBord, who fought side by side with him and who was with him in prison at Camp Douglas, and ought to know him pretty well, says he was an excellent man and a capital soldier. Mr. Abraham was about 72 years of age and a bachelor and lived and died near Crab Orchard.
