    • Obituary: 1 Oct 1897 Account of Loyal Chauncey Abbott's death
      L.C. Abbott, of Mt. Auburn, Iowa attempts to cross a railroad crossing ahead of a train and is cought and instantly killed. Friday afternoon, as Mr.L.C. Abbott of Mt. Auburn was coming to Vinton driving a single horse, he under took to cross the Correll crossing at the northwest corner of town. He miscalculated the distance and was thrown a considerable distance and died a short time after the accident.
      The train was running at a good speed and Mr. Abbott's body was pretty badly mangled. It was thrown against and caught on the top of the cowcatcher, as was also the buggy. The train which was a heavy freight was stopped as soon as possible. the body was left on the cow-catcher and brought to the depot,which was only a short distance. The body was taken into the depot and the relatives immediately notified.
      From all the facts we could gather this death was caused by the miscalculation of Mr. Abbott or the horse becoming over excited. The road coming in from Mt. Auburn runs parallel with the railroad for quite a distance before it reaches this crossing so that the train can be seen. The trainmen say that when Mr. Abbott got near the crossing he stopped his horse as though he intended to wait and let the train pass first. Then, evidently thinking the train was far enough back to let him pass, started his horse again and met the train square on the crossing.
      Mr. Abbott was one of the pioneers of the county and a man greatly respected in his section of the country. By frugality and industry he had accumulated a competence. He was somewhat over 70 years of age and has family of grown children. He had been married again but a short time and was living in Mt. Auburn, having retired from active farm live. The funeral was held in Mt.Auburn yesterday.

      HISTORY: Portrait and Biographical Album of Benton County, by Chapman Brothers, Chicago, 1887. Page 299.
      "Loyal C. Abbot, a farmer residing in section 6, Cedar Township, is the owner of 960 acres of land in this township and eighty acres in Kossuth County. He entered 215 acres from the Government, including his homestead, and the remainder he purchased from time to time.
      "Mr. Abbot was born in the state of New York, 3 Feb 1826 and in childhood moved to Erie County (New York). He is a son of John S. and Lucinda (Corson)Abbot. His father was born in Herkimer County, New York, and his mother in
      Vermont. When Loyal was twelve years of age the family moved to Lucas County,Ohio, where he was brought up on a farm. He moved to Illinois in the winter of 1848/1849, and made his home in Marshall County, where he worked at odd jobs.
      On 15 Jan 1851 he was united in marriage to Elizabeth Cooper, a native of Ohio, born near Chllicothe, and a daughter of Frederick and Sarah (Downing)Cooper. In May 1853, they left Illinois for Iowa, and came to Benton County, arriving here in June of the year, and lived in their wagon until the completion of their house in Cedar Township, into which they moved and at once commenced improving the land.
