DEATH CALLS OLD PIONEER
Richard Abbey Answers the Final Summons

Richard Abbey, retired capitalist and resident of this city for the past twenty-five years, passed away shortly before midnight at his home, 915 Adeline street, after a very brief siege of pneumonia.
About two weeks ago, Mr. Abbey contracted a slight cold, which quickly developed into pneumonia and although the best medical aid as at hand, and every comfort placed around him, age proved too great for the physicians to battle to save him.
Richard Abbey was a native of England. He was in his eighty-third year and came to this country in the prime of his manhood. For some years he was interested in a big box factory on this coast, and late he acquired valuable interests in quicksilver mines near Guerneville.
He leaves a daughter, Mrs. M. A. Farquhar, and one son, Alfred Abbey, both of whome were at his bedside during his final days and up to the time of his death.
Mr. Abbey was a man of sterling character, a true Christian in principle and a prominent pillar in the M. E. Church. [Oakland Tribune 21 Jan 1901]
