      ________________________________

      Info from Roger Hervey: Abigail was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in her 50's and was in a wheel chair by age 54. Her husband, Otto, was her cargiver for the rest of her life. Her son, Dwight, and his wife Mildred moved into the family farm after they wer married in 1947. Otto and Abigail moved into Donnellson at that time. Otto had cancer, possibly resulting from trauma from his truck being rear-ended.
