Obituary McKean County Miner - Nov 21, 1890, courtesy of Ron Reid:
"Death N.W. Abbey. N.W. Abbey who has been in very feeble health for some time past, died at the family residence, corner King and Franklin streets, in this borough on Saturday last, aged 71 years, 7 months and 13 days, the immediate cause of death being a complication of diseases, superinduced by old age.
Nathaniel W. Abbey was born in New Berlin, Chenango County, N.Y. April 3d, 1819 and came to this county with his parents in 1832, since which time he has been a consistent resident and closely identified with the growth and prosperity. On the third of June 1850, he was married to Miss E . P. Patterson who together with two sons, Jay R. and Pitt E. Abbey, survive him, his only daughter Edie A. dying in her infancy. Mr. Abbey was a staunch Republican and in 1881 was elected as a candidate of that party, to the office of County Commissioner which position he filled for the three years during which the present court house was built. His profession of contractor and builder making his services at that event particularly valuable. The Smethport grade school was also built under the immediate supervision of Mr. Abbey which fully utilized his abilities as a builder. The original portion is recognized as one of the best constructed buildings in this section.
As a man Mr. Abbey was universally respected for his many good qualities of head and heart, and a large circle of friends sincerely mourn his death. The funeral services were held at the family residence on Monday morning, Rev. T.W. Chandler officiating. The remains to Colegrove for interment."
