Funeral services for Mrs. Florence W. Abbott were held at the Abbott home, [which is] one and a half miles north of Hagerman, on Friday [30 October 1936] afternoon. The Rev. Frank A.

Mrs. Abbott died at Glenns Ferry [on Tuesday,] October 27, from the effects of shock suffered in an automobile accident on the highway between Glenns Ferry and King Hill.
Mrs. Abbott was born in [Mount Gilead] Ohio, on January 20, 1857, and moved, with her parents, to Kansas at an early age [in March 1857].
[On September 24, 1877,] she married James Whitin Abbott, at Lake City, Colorado.
In 1910, she came to Idaho. In 1917, she purchased the O. P. Johnson ranch, where she had since made her home.
Surviving are her son, Charles W. Abbott, of Hagerman, who is a member of the district Taylor Grazing Act control board, and was in the sheep business with her; a daughter, Mrs. [Ruth] Edward Letchworth of Buffalo, New York; four grandchildren, James H. Abbott and Miss Helen Abbott, of Hagerman, and Edward E. and George C. Letchworth, of Buffalo, New York; and a brother, David Wood, of Montrose, [Colorado].
Mrs. Abbott's father, Col. Samuel N. Wood, was a member of the Republican national convention that nominated Abraham Lincoln for the presidency. [Sic. He was at the 1856 convention that chartered the Republican Party. He missed the 1860 convention that nominated Lincoln, because his adversaries had him poisoned while he was en route to it. Fortunately, he received prompt medical attention and survived.]
