Note: John Abbott and his wife came here to Andover, Oxford County, Maine, with his father and mother on 05 May 1794, and chose for their farm Lot No. 2, West side or the second lot from Rumford, Oxford County, Maine, where he lived until his death. He had a large and good farm, and was a pretty good farmer. He was a cabinet and chair maker by trade, but did not work much at that business except in the winter, when he spent most of his time at it. He managed his farm well, set out an orchard early, and when in the prime of life was in good circumstances. They had a large family, and were pretty well instructed and posted up in public affairs. He and his family were great readers. As a citizen, good, but did not take an active part in town affairs. As a companion and a father he was kind, affectionate, and social, enjoyed company and loved to make those around him happy. He built the first cider mill in this town of Andover, Oxford County, Maine, in the year 18_, which was the only one for several years. As a neighbor, he was kind and obliging, He became embarrassed in his financial affairs in his old age by becoming security for his son, Joseph, who went into trade in this town in 1829, and failed in 1830, and came near having to sell his farm to pay the debts. He died of a rupture. He was a smart, active man till his death, and was sick but a few days. Mr Benjamin Hall, a descendant, ran the farm in 1897.
