    Obituary, uncited
    Sheguiandah (handwritten 1906)
    Mr. Ambrose Abbott, who has been ill for several months with internal abscesses, passed peacefully away last Sunday afternoon. Deceased was of a very kind sympathetic nature, ever willing to lend a helping hand, and as a consequence he was known and loved by hosts of friends and neighbors, who turned out on Monday afternoon to the funeral to pay a last tribute of respect to one whose ever cheerful face had made glad many a home and heart. The Rev. Mr. Prewer, who has been a regular attendant at the bed-side of deceased during his long and trying illness, held a brief service at the house taking for his text the words which had been Mr. Abbott's favorite verse of scripture, "In my Father's house are many mansions, if it were not so I would have told you." The assurance that he is now enjoying the promised blessing is a source of joy and comfort to his sorrowing wife and family who have the earnest sympathies of this community in their sorrow. Mr. Abbott, who was in his 72nd year was born in Halton County. In early life he worked at carpentering and on coming to the Manitoulin twenty-eight years ago he took up the present homestead and by diligence made a comfortable home. He took a deep interest in all public matters and was for years a member of the council of the municipality of Howland. The Council being in session Monday adjourned in order that hey might attend the funeral in a body. Mr. Abbott leaves a sorrowing widow, five sons, Daniel T. Abbott of Colby, Wis., U.S.A., Byron A. Abbott of Sault Ste. Marie, Wm. Abbott of Riverdale, C.A. Abbott, Emerson Abbot and D. A. Abbott of Sheguiandah Township, and one daughter, Mrs. F. Fields of Manitowaning. One daughter died in infancy.
