Born in the city of Hudson, New York, Mr. Abbott left for California in the memorable year 1849, on the bark “Nautilus.” The adventurous passage was made in safety. Coming directly to this County, Mr. Abbott spent several years in mining, the common occupation of nearly every one at that time. With the decay of placer mining, he retired from that pursuit and entered the pleasanter ways of agriculture, devoting himself to tilling the kindly sod of his pleasant ranch on the North Branch of Sullivan’s Creek, where he now lives, having surrounded himself with a family.
