DIES DECEMBER 26, 1960
Judge Charles Monroe Abbett, judge of the probate court and ex-officio magistrate of Miller County, died Monday at Still-Hildroth Hospital in Macon where he had been a patient 10 days.

The judge was a familiar figure in the county courthouse at Tuscumbia. He served as circuit clerk for eight years, being first elected in 1922.
In 1938 he was elected probate judge of Miller County, an office which he continued to hold at the time of his death. He was last elected to a four year term in 1958. Since 1946, he had also served as ex-officio magistrate, following the adoption of Missouri's new constitution providing for this.

His son, Raymond Abbett, was electocuted in 1952 when he came in contact with a power line after an auto accident near Etterville.
