Ira S. Abbott
In this city July 21, Mr. Ira S. Abbott, aged 45.
Mr Ira S. Abbott, whose decease is recorded in another column, had been sick from old-fashioned consumption, contracted in the service, for nearly four years, and had been confined to his bed for the last year. During this tome h had been supported almost wholly by the Odd Fellows and G.A.R. having received almost $1000 from the former body, besides being furnished with watchers during his last days. This fact illustrates the practical benevolence of the Order in a way that no doubt can be cast upon.
