Biloxi Daily Herald, June 15, 1902, page 8: "Mobile Items: Mrs. William H. Ross has suffered a slight stroke of paralysis on her left side. Latest news from her is that she is much improved and doing well. Her daughters, Mrs. James H. Maury, of Pass Christian, and Mrs. J.L. Abbot, of Little Rock, have arrived; also her sister, Miss Eugenia Lyon, of Demopolis."

Mrs. Abbot moved from Mobile to Little Rock, Arkansas, where her husband died, after which time she returned to Mobile where she owned ornamental nurseries and orchards.
For a number of years she resided with her daughter at the Emmanuel house on Government Street. They apparently rented the Georgian mansion from the Episcopal Diocese or managed it for the Diocese which owned it for many years.

Mrs. Abbot later lived at 551 Government Street, across Government Street from her mother and across South Lawrence Street from her brother William Lightfoot Ross. She later demolished the house and erected a modern motel designed by Billy March, Registered Architect.

In 1910 she lived with her daughter and son-in-law, Serena and Terry L. Moore, at number 2 North Monterey St. (later renumbered 8 N. Monterey). The Moores had built it by 1901. By 1918 they moved to 551 Government Street, and Mrs. Abbot moved with them and died there.
