ABBOTT, Henry Phillip       Submitted by Tammy Knipp

                    In Memory of HENRY P. ABBOTT.

     Henry Phillips Abbott, late of Allen Township, Washington county, was born in
Brownsville, Fayette County, Pa., October 31, 1835, and was almost instantly killed by a
fall of coal and slate in the Clipper coal mines, near the village of Allenport, Washington
county, Pa., on the morning of June 29, 1891. In comemoration of an honored parent we
pay this tribute of respect to his memory.
     His early manhood was spent in and near Fayette City, having for a number of years engaged in mining
and before the day of steamboats, in boating coal from the
Monongahela River to southern markets, a business full of variety and which he took a
delight. Twice previous to the fatal 29th of June, 1891, he was twice carried from the
same mine badly injured; at one time a leg broken, a second so severly injured in the back
that fears were entertained for his recovery.
     At the age of 27 years at the country's call for volunteers to preserve the flag from
dishonor, he enlisted under Captain Frank M. Nelson in Company B, 8th Regiment of
Infantry, P.R.C. volunteers, and was enrolled on the 25th day of June, 1861, to serve three years or during the
war, and was discharged from service in this Company on the 18th day of June, 1863, at a camp near Alexander,
Va. by reason of re-enlistment as a private in Company H, 191st Regiment Infantry, Pennsylvania veteren
volunteers, Enrolled on the 19th day of November, 1863, and served until the close of the war, being finally
discharged from the service of the United States the 28th day of June, 1865.
     After the close of this great National conflict he returned to his former home near Fayette City and
resumed his former occupation and quiet life. Being a man of firm convictions and in everything consistant to the
____ as he saw and believed the right, he renounced the political faith of his ancestery and became an unalterable
Republican, believing as lie had often said either he could not support by ballot the cause he had taken up arms
against in more than four years of bitter struggle and privation. He was a thorough American and a radical
protectionist, never slaughtering his party and the common good of the people to appease a personal grudge; he
lost sight of individuals in loyalty to the policy of his party and his country....
     ....His remains are resting on beautiful Mt. Tabor cemetery; laid there by the loving hands, and with the
ritualistic ceremonies of his comrades of the Grand Army of the Republic.
>Newspaper and date unknown-probably early July, 1891

"Beal Sup't Killed and One Injured"
    Walking into an exploding charge of mine powder, Henry Abbott, aged 44, superintendent of the Beal Coal
Company's mine at Revere, Friday afternoon was instantly killed and Edward Farnhart, miner, of Uledi, was
badly injured and is now in the Uniontown hospital.
    Mr. Abbott had been employed as superintendent of the plant less than one month.  He was formerly mine
foreman for the Eclipse mine and has lived the greater part of his life at Roscoe, where members of the family
reside.
    The two men had placed a charge in one of the workings and had retired to await the explosion.  A similar
charge nearby went off, and the two men returned to the spot in the belief that their explosive had been fired.
They were within a foot of the charge when it let go.
    The superintendent was badly torn and death was immediate.  Barnhart was thrown a considerable distance and
his legs were crushed.  Nearby workers carried the two men out and Barnhart was rushed to the Uniontown
hospital.  At that institution an X-ray examination will be made this morning to locate the fractures.  The bones
of the left leg were broken, it is believed, in four places and there are compound dislocation of the right leg.
    The superintendent is survived by his wife, an adopted daughter, his parents and one brother, Alva Abbott of
Roscoe.  The remains were taken to the undertaking parlors of W.S. Nixon where they have been prepared for
burial.  Services will be conducted Sunday afternoon at Roscoe with interment in the cemetary there.
