Martha Jane Durham, d/o John & Sarah Stubbins Durham was born near Waveland March 10, 1850 was married to Rufus Smith Abbott Feb 1, 1877 and d. July 27,1918. Early in life she became a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church at Waveland; after her marriage transferred her membership to the Presbyterian Church at Dillsboro. She was a sweet spirited unassuming Christian, only those most closely associated with her could fully appreciate her beautiful Christian character. She had been a great sufferer for many years, so when God came for her she gladly went home. Her departure for her Father's house leaves a sad vacancy in the home. She is survived by her husband, two sons, Harry Durham Abbott of this city and Irvin Walker Abbott of Chicago, three granddaughters and a devoted dau-in-law. Aurora Bulletin
