A resident of Rock Springs nearly 65 years, Mr. Abraham died at 1:55 p.m. Sunday at Wyoming General hospital. He had been a patient at the hospital for a week.
He was a native of Karfely, Wales, and was born May 8, 1867. He came to this country as a youngster, and lived in Pennsylvania and Utah prior to moving to Rock Springs. He had worked for the Union Pacific Coal company from 1881 until his retirement in 1931. For the last 25 years with the company, he was an electrician.
The survivors, in addition to his daughter, Mrs. Powell, are his son, John Abraham of Cheyenne; three other daughters, Mrs. Clarence Overy of Rock Springs, Mrs. Esther Gravelle of Denver and Mrs. Donald Grimes of Etworth, Iowa; ten grandchildren; one brother, John Abraham of Lovell, and three sisters, Mrs. A.M. King of Kemmerer, Mrs. J.H. Dicky of Dillon, Mont., and Mrs. J.H. Holmes of Salt Lake City. Most of them arrived this week in Rock Springs to attend the funeral.
