Abbott, Charles F
Abbott, Charles F.
a Congregational minister, was born at Levington, Vt., Nov. 27, 1831. He was converted when nineteen years of age; fitted for college at Chester; graduated at Middlebury College in 1854, and at Andover Theological Seminary in 1861. He offered himself as a missionary to the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, and was assigned work in Persia. The war, however, interfered with his going abroad at that time, and he was ordained at Bristol, N. H. in 1862, where he labored until his death, Sept. 20 1866. "Mr. Abbott was universally beloved; frank, generous, and noble; much disciplined in the school of sorrow, but cheerful; and, although anxious to live, cheered by the thought of rest." See Cong. Quar. 1867, p. 204.
