From page 7, The Biographical Record of Kane County, Illinois, under the heading for his son, Robert:

The father purchased a farm two miles and a half northwest of Dundee in Kane county, and here followed agricultural pursuits, although in his native land he had served as foreman in a colliery. On laying aside business cares, he moved to Elgin, where he died June 23, 1897, aged eighty- four years and one month. He was a worthy and highly respected citizen, ever kind and accommodating to his neighbors and friends, and just and honorable in all his dealings. His whole life was characterized by honesty, industry and those qualities essential to good citizenship. He was first a Republican in politics and later a Dem- ocrat, while in religious belief he was a Pres- byterian, to which church his wife also be- longed. She died April 8, 1893, at the age of eighty-one years. By a former marriage he had one son, Abram Archibald, Jr., now living near Los Angeles, California.

NOTE: He was first married in Scotland, then came to the States in 1846/47 and remarried to Jane Crichton in 1847. Robert was their only child. Abram Jr. was born in Scotland to his father's first wife.
