Excerpt from Transactions of the Maine State Pomological Society for the Year 1900: Including the Proceedings of the Winter Meeting Held in Norway, November 13 and 14, 1900

The death of Lyman F. Abbott, which occurred at his home in Lewis ton, March 31, 1900, removes from our society one of its most reliable and valuable officers, and demands from us more than a passing notice.

From his boyhood Mr. Abbott had been closely connected with the farm and interested in everything that pertained to it; few men in the State were better known and more thoroughly trusted by the farmers.

He was the son of Nathaniel and Mary Stockbridge Abbott, and was born in Andover in 1830. Here he lived, engaged in farming till he was thirty-four years old, when he removed to Wilton. He remained in Wilton seventeen years. Occupied in trade and farming. During his resi dence in Andover he began writing for the agricultural columns of the Oxford Democrat, and other papers.

In 1882 he became agricultural editor of the Lewiston Journal, which position he held until his death, and in addition to his editorial duties he frequently contributed to the leading agricultural papers, and also to the annual reports of the State department of agriculture. These articles covered a wide range of topics, for his interest was not limited to a few subjects. He was an enthusiastic entomologist, acquainted with the farmer's insect friends and enemies, following their life history through all its changes, and knowing when to check and when to encourage them.

Bee-keeping was a constant and fascinating study to him. And his papers on this subject were delightful reading. He was also greatly interested in stock-breeding, in the introduction of new breeds, and the improvement of the old standards by the infusion of new blood. Still another interest brought him in touch with our work. He was long a cultivator of ?owers, and especially enjoyed the development of our beautiful native shrubs under his own care; the cultivation of small fruits was a pastime and a pleasure, while the larger problems of orchard management, pruning, fertilizing and tillage, presented an ever changing and widening field for study.
