General Notes: Husband - Earl T. Abbott
He received his education in the public schools, and as soon as he was old enough he engaged in the lumbering business, working in saw and shingle mills until he was thirty years of age. When he was twenty-one he embarked with his brothers in various mercantile pursuits, working at the same time in the lumber trade and doing an extensive business. Among other things they purchased the Curtis-Davis feed and saw mills, and on April 3, 1899, they bought the mercantile business of D. M. Stillson. At this time Earl T. Abbott took charge of the store end of their business while his brother looked after the lumber interests. On January 1, 1904, Mr. Abbott sold his interest in the lumber business to his brothers and purchased from them their interests in the Abbott Brothers store. After that time he was in business for himself alone. He also owned and operated a large feed mill and did an extensive coal business besides. He also owned the stage and dray line running between Sugar Grove, Pennsylvania, and Jamestown, New York. He was a member of Colebrook Lodge, No. 1124, Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and was active in the affairs of that lodge, being a member of the degree team. He and his family attended the Methodist Episcopal church.
