Birth: unknown
Death: Jun. 12, 1923

Abijah died on a construction site in Seattle, falling five stories to his death. The event was a front page headline on the 12 June Seattle Times Paper. For many years he did not have much of a marker. In the late 1940's, when his wife Jessie died, their son bought large stones for both of them. They and their son Walter are supposedly all buried
together.
Abijah was moved from Washelli in 1936 to Arcadia Cemetery, just east of Washelli. when his son, Walter met a tragic end at age 21. Jessie, Abijah's wife followed in 1944. (Information from Mark Downen.)
