Daughter of James Glenn.

   The Late Mrs. Anna Abbott
    Early last Wednesday morning, Mrs. Anna Abbott passed away at the home of her granddaughter, Mrs. Leslie B. Tyler, of Scranton. She was the daughter of God-fearing Scotch-Irish parents and was born seventy-seven years ago in Summit Hill, Pa. Growing to gracious and noble womanhood, she was married in 1858 to Hewitt James Abbott. At the beginning of the Civil War her husband became a lieutenant in the 81st Pennsylvania Volunteers. This regiment was organized at Summit Hill, Pa., and was among the first to be called to the front. Lieutenant Abbott was killed in the battle of Malvern Hill, Va.., and his burial place is unknown. His widow and two daughters, Harriet and Bessie, survive him. After her husband's death, Mrs. Abbott and her little family moved to Wilkes-Barre, where she lived for the greater part of her life. She was one of nature's noblewomen.
    Bereft and without great means, she worked faithfully and heroically to educate and provide for her children. In her many busy days she had always time for a kindly, sympathetic word to those who needed it. She was a member of the First Methodists Church for many years and her high Christian character and kindly disposition endeared her to all. Her work well done, her labors o'er, she fell gently and quietly asleep, leaving in the hearts of those who loved her the memory of a useful life nobly lived to its fullest, and crowned at last with the Master's "Well done, thou good and faithful servant."
