E. C. ABBOTT, farmer, P. O. Georgetown, was born in Pleasant Township December 23, 1833. His parents, Charles and Sarah (Brown) Abbott, were natives of this county. His father still lives in what is known as the old county seat. The subject of this sketch received a common school education, and then selected his father’s occupation as his own, and applied himself earnestly to farming. Quiet and unassuming and ever attentive to his business, he has made it very successful. He favors the Democratic party. Sarah F. Davidson, who was born in this county in 1831, became his wife in 1855. They have six children, all living — Flora K. (wife of Isaac Rainey), Charles W., Henry T., Frank, Hester A. and Lena M.
