Ira S. Abbott

In this city July 21, Mr. Ira S. Abbott, aged 45.

Suffering Ended.

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.
