The compensation, to such a man consists not in dollars and cents alone, but in the satisfaction of knowing that he is doing his duty, and that his services are appreciated. Alexander Samuel Abbott, son of Samuel and Mary (Gunning) Abbott, was born near Mount Bellew Bridge, County of Galway, Ireland, June 30, 1812, the Abbotts being an old Irish family.
