Abraham Anthony Jr. died by lightning, in his brass bed at home, according to oral family history. He was the son of Abraham Anthony, Sr. and Elizabeth Hilsinger and the husband of Mary Allen. He was a skilled carpenter and barn builder. In his youth his family moved to Jefferson Co, NY. In 1844 Abraham migrated with his family first to Rutland Center, Dane, WI, where he stayed two years near where his brother David had a large farm. Then in 1846 Abraham moved his family to Portage Co., WI, where he lived for the last thirteen years of his life. In June, 1859, Abraham spent time in Rutland, Dane County, WI, selling some farm land that he owned there. Very soon after his return to Portage County the tragedy happened. While he was asleep with his wife in their brass bed lightning struck the house and reached their brass bed. He died from electrocution immediately. His wife was seriously injured and died ten days later.
