We understand that the remains of Comrade Abbott were accompanied by members of the McPherson Post to Arlington where his remains were enterred on Saturday, Rev. Brown, of Fremont officiating. He had only resided in Fremont a few months prior to which time he was for many years a resident of Arlington, this county. The Times in speaking of him says that his funeral was largely attended by his many friends of that city.
