THOMAS ABBOTT, the son of Thomas K. and Abigail (Hoyngton) Abbott, was born at Derby Line, Vt., and was educated in the common schools and Brownington Academy. He studied law with Jessie Cooper of Irasburgh, and was admitted to the Orleans county bar at its June term, A. D. 1848, and at once commenced the practice of law at Barton, where he remained two years. From there he went to Millsbury, Mass., where he practiced until 1855, when he removed to West Union, Iowa, and practiced law until 1859, when he removed to Independence, Iowa, where he still lives. Mr. Abbott enlisted and served in the Forty-seventh Iowa Infantry in the late war, where he contracted disease, so that at the close of the war he did not resume practice. Mr. Abbott married Ann M. Chadwick, and has two sons—Fred M. who is pastor of the Congregational church of Marseilles, III, and Edward B., a law student at home.
