C. T. Abbey got an appointment to West Point after he graduated from high school but apparently was not old enough to accept the appointment. He went out to North Dakota and for two years was a cowboy. Part of that time, at least, he was in a cabin out on the prairie all by himself. He saw the Northern Lights many times, sometimes parallel to the ground and would come just like a big tube of light along the ground. While he was a cowboy he participated in two roundups. At that time (1905 -1907) there were no fences and the roundup would begin with cowboys like Mr. Abbey going out and rounding up all the cattle they could find and bringing them in to camp. The cattle would be sorted out by different brands and the brands from their ranch stayed there. Evidently the other brands were taken forward and dropped off at wherever they belonged. Mr. Abbey said that the sun came up about 4:00 a.m. and went down about 10:00 p.m. They would get up, have breakfast, and then roundup until noon when they would come back to headquarters (that is to the chuck wagon). They would get a new horse, eat lunch, and then go rounding up again until about 9:00 p.m. The trail boss when he was on the roundup was named Favor, and was from Texas. There were some terrific cowboys on the roundup. Some of the older cowboys would never go to sleep at night, and would sit and talk and play poker. I guess they slept in the saddle some times during the daytime. The roundup he was on apparently went for about 300 miles and crossed the Little Missouri River. He said most of the cowboys swam across the river with their horses, but that there was one man that had taught his horse how to walk on the railroad trestle and he would walk his horse across. Mr. Abbey said some of the older cowboys could rope a calf over a cow.

While Mr. Abbey was a cowboy he got a second appointment to West Point but it did not reach him until the time for acceptance had expired. Apparently he never got another opportunity for an appointment. About this time C. T. Abbey went to Oklahoma to work for his brother, Erwin, drilling oil wells. Several years earlier Erwin had shot a man and thought that he had killed him, so he fled and for a long time the family did not know where he was. Erwin would send post cards back to the family and say that he was OK, but would not tell them where he was because he thought that the law was after him. It turned out that the man didn't die, so Erwin eventually contacted the family and it was after that time that Mr. Abbey went down to work for him. This must have been about 1907 or 1908. Glenn Abbey said he remembered seeing Erwin only two times in his life; his parent's 30th and 50th wedding anniversary family reunions.


Erwin William Abbey (age 32) and Edna E. Hyde (age 19) were married September 6, 1908, in Sapulpa, Creek Co., OK.aaaa

Muskogee Boy Says He Shot Aged Dad

Claims Meant to Scare Him When Father Advanced On Him With Hammer

MUSKOGEE, Okla., Nov. 20. - Police Capt. Homer Pitman said today Donald Hyde, 16, had admitted he shot his 81-year-old father, William J. Hyde, whose body was found last night on the kitchen floor of his home. Pitman quoted the youth as saying he fired a .22 caliber rifle "just to scare" his father when the aged man threatened him with a hammer during a quarrel. Earlier the boy had denied knowledge of how his father died, saying only that he had found the body on his return to the house. The elder Hyde, a state pensioner, died from a bullet in the heart. No charges have yet been filed against the youth. Police said young Hyde related that after the shooting, he hid the gun in some bushes, then returned to the house. "After I seen he was dead," Pitman quoted him, "I went to the neighbors and called an ambulance or something." Pitman said the hammer which the youth said his father wielded was found under the dead man's body. According to Pitman, young Hyde told him he seized the gun and retreated to the porch of the house when his father advanced on him menacingly. "I didn't mean to hit him, just to scare him." the officer said the boy told him. "He got in the range of fire. He started cussin' and I didn't know I killed him." Pitman said young Hyde told of numerous "spats" with his father and said the boy attributed last night's quarrel to his parent's anger at his attending school.

From the Jeromey Ward website: 

Eli Abbey was born on 12 Apr 1820 in New York. He died on 14 Jun 1884 in New York. He married Rachel Ferguson on 1 Mar 1840 in Connecticut.

From Genforum's Abbey board:
I have an old ABBEY family bible. There is some ABBEY-FERGUSON information recorded in it:
Eli Abbey was married March 1, 1840 to Rachel Ferguson.
Jane Ferguson died February 14/15/18, (no year) - age 73/93 years, 8 mths, 2 days.
Eli Abbey died June 14, 1884 - age 64 years, 2 mths, 2 days.
Reuben Ferguson was murdered June 10, 1856 - age 35 years, 9 mths, 14 days. (Note: Reuben FERGUSON appears to be the brother of Rachel (FERGUSON) who married Eli ABBE/ABBEY March 1, 1840.)
Family tradition indicates that all of these events took place in Upstate New York.
I will greatly appreciate hearing from anyone that is connected to this ABBEY-FERGUSON family.
Thank you for any information.

AND

I have an old ABBEY family bible. Some of the information recorded in it is as follows:
(grouped together on one page): Page 958 Susannah Rogers was born January 11, 1803 Hiram Rogers was born February 14, 1806 William Rogers was born October 24, 1808 Marvin Rogers was born March 31, 1809 Triphena Abbe was born August 31, 1817 Eli Abbe was born April 12, 1820
The way these Abbe & Rogers births are recorded together, could indicate that they are half siblings.
I would greatly appreciate any information regarding this ABBE/ABBEY-ROGERS connection.
Indications are that this ABBEY family was in Upstate New York.
Thank you for any information.

Rachel Ferguson was born in 1816 in New York. She married Eli Abbey on 1 Mar 1840 in Connecticut.

They had the following children:

  1. Sarah Mary Jane Abbey

Sandia Base, NM Guard House Fire, Mar 1950

FOURTEEN GI'S PERISH IN FIRE.

OIL FED FLAMES ENGULF SANDIA GUARD HOUSE.

Albuquerque, N.M. (AP) -- Oil-fed flames, leaping lightning fast through a Sandia Base guardhouse, snuffed out the lives of 14 military prisoners last night.
Trapped with them in the tinder-dry wood structure, the prison's other two inmates were injured critically. It was the first major disaster in the history of the war-built installation -- now a semi-secret assembly point for the atomic bomb. Two guards, alerted by prisoners' cries, vainly tried to rescue them from behind bars and meshed wire windows. They were overcome along with six others fighting the blaze. Twenty additional officers and men also were treated for smoke effects. It was all over 25 minutes after the first alarm was sounded at 7:35 p.m. (MST). Thirteen of the prisoners apparently died in the first few seconds; the other succumbed two hours later at a hospital. Most of the victims were believed to have inhaled the intense, almost instantaneous heat and suffocated, Sandia authorities said. Guards reported there were few outcries to indicate any suffered long. Contrary to first reports Maj. Kenneth Kolster, Sandia's intelligence officer, said there was no evidence of an explosion. Examination of the charred, dank smelling structure afterward bore him out. Damage consisted principally of badly scorched ceilings and walls, mostly in a 100-foot L-shaped corridor and three cell blocks. It appeared the fire flashed overhead in less time than it takes to tell.

The prisoners had finished their evening meal a short time before. Some already were in bed, reading or sleeping. Bodies of two were found in a shower room; three others lay just outside the door. Personal effects littered their quarters, some scarcely touched by the blaze. Nearly a fourth of the two-tiered bunk-beds were not even scorched. Several contained magazines, obviously dropped as their owners leaped in alarm. Helmets and freshly shined shoes stood under some. Clothing, hung in head-high racks, generally was part burned. Major Kelster described five of the prison inmates as "hard cookies," jailed after conviction on serious charges by a military court. The others he labelled minor offenders. He declined to detail charges on which any were courtmartialled. The two guards were the buildings only occupants besides the 16 prisoners. One, Cpl. RICHARD A. MILLER, 27, of 5524 E. Hobart, Stockton, Calif., was in the guardhouse office at the opposite end of the building from the flaming stove when fire was discovered. The other, Pvt. WILBUR HENRY, 22, of Rt. 2, South Zanesville, O., was walking back to the office midway along the corridor. He had passed the stove five minutes earlier. Both were overcome by smoke, but attendants said they probably would be able to leave the hospital today or tomorrow.
Condition of the injured:

Pfc. ROBERT C. DARANEK, 20, of Minneapolis and Pvt. HARRY C. HANDLEY, 24, of Hamilton, Ohio, both remained grave this morning. Authorities reported shortly before 8 a.m. (MST). Both were in oxygen tents. Newsmen were told neither the injured prisoners nor the guards could be interviewed. The provost marshal Lt. Col. Ralph Tolve, and post police and prison officer Lt. Stephen H. Perry, and four unidentified civilian firemen also were overcome by smoke. Kolster said the fire-swept guardhouse -- a temporary type building -- is at least three-quarters of a mile from the nearest restricted area in which activities are secret. He reported a representative of the Provost Marshal General's office in Washington inspected the base less than a month ago and pronounced all buildings, including the prison, in excellent condition from a safety standpoint.

Sandia is a field installation of the Armed Forces Special Weapons Project. It works closely with Los Alamos Atomic Installation, 60 miles to the north, and nearby Kirtland Field, the Air Force's Special Weapons Command. The sprawling 26,800-acre reservation on the Eastern Albuquerque limits and just under the shadow of the Sandia mountains originally was an air field and later used to store hundreds of war retired planes. It became a secret installation after World War II and has mushroomed in size and importance in recent years. The fire was sighted at 7:35 p.m. (MST). A prisoner called out to one of the guards. In approximately 15 minutes the building was gutted. The guard, corporal MILLER, said he saw a flash of light and called out to Private HENRY to sound the fire alarm. "I started to try to release the prisoners from the cell Blocks," he related to investigators. "Before I was able to unlock the first door, the flame and heat and smoke drove me back." HENRY said he sounded the fire alarm and tried to get the prisoners out "but there was fire all up and down the hallway and I couldn't get to the door. When the fire department got there, I helped them remove the prisoners." The guards were quoted by Major Kenneth Kolster, public information officer, as saying there was little outcry from the prisoners after the initial alarm. "The only blessing -- if there can be a blessing," Kolster said, "Is that there was almost no suffering. They must have died almost immediately from inhaling the intense heat." Flames were visible to motorists on U.S. Highway 66, just off which the main entrance to Sandia is located. No civilian agency was called to the emergency. The Sandia fire department -- located just half a block from the prison -- was unable to get the trapped men through the smoke. Clovis News Journal New Mexico 1950-03-09.
