    John Stearns Abbott Obituary, Detroit Daily Free Press 9-28-1852
    "DIED: At his residence in Springwells, near Detroit, on Sunday, the
    26th o f Sepember inst. at about 7 o'clock in the morning of apulmonary
    consumption , John S. Abbott, Esquire, aged thirty-eight years and two
    months.
    The sub ject of this notice was born in Tolland, in the state of
    Connecticut, on the 22nd of July, 1814. He entered Yale College earlyin
    life, and graduated at that institution, bearing the reputation of an
    honest man, and of a good ripe scholar, at the age oftwenty-five---He
    soon after entered the celebrated la w School of the late JudgeDaggett of
    New Haven. Having completed his prepar atory studies and fittedhimself
    for the laborious duties of the profession, he came to Detroit, wherein
    1835 he established himself in practice, and whe re until within a few
    months of his death, he continued unceasingly, and to t he manifestinjury
    of his health, to pursue it. He was a sound and well read lawyer: he
    early required and always sustained a high reputation at he Bar: andwas
    esteemed and respected by his associates for his talents and for his
    honorable and upright bearing. In 1845 he married Lucy Maria,daughter
    of William Woodbridge, Esq. (late Governor of Michigan) whom he has
    now---in th e morning of her life---with three beautiful andinteresting
    children, thus e arly left to deplore this sudden and fearful
    bereavement. But it was the han d of God: Who can stand against it?
    For the last two or three weeks of his lif e, the deceased appears tohave
    given up all hopes of his recovery and calmly and deliberately set
    himself to the work of preparing himself and his affai rs for that
    catastrophe which was destined so soon to close his earthly caree rand it
    is a source of great consolation to the writer of this brief notice,and
    especially to his distressed family that, (so far as human evidencecan
    verify it.) he died a sincere and devoted Christian---with a placidityof
    m ind which the Christian alone can feel---and happy in his confidenthope
    of a blessed immortality.
