McAbee, a white man, aged - 50 years, committed suicide at his home at Farimont yesterday afternoon by taking 30 grains of morphine.Worry over financial troubles is attributed as the cause.He leaves a wife, six daughters, Mrs. West Gregory, Mrs. Fanny Grier, Mrs. Cleve Wood, Miss Mellie McAbee, Miss Edna McAbee and Miss Ellie McAbee, and two sons, Oscar and Hammond McAbee. Yesterday Mr. McAbee arose at 4 o'clock and made the fires, after which he again went to bed.About half an hour later his wife noticed he was evidently sick and suffering.Medical assistance was summoned.Investigation showed that he had a bottle half full of morphone in his pocket, which he had opened.The other half of the contents he had swallowed.He lingered until 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, when he died without regaining consciousness. Mr. McAbee is said to have owed many accounts and he had several notes.He was in financial difficulties, which is said to have preyed on his mind and this is the attributed cause of his suicide.He has lived at Fairmont all of his live and was formerly an operative in the mill there.At the time of his death he was working for a machine company. Coroner Turner stated last night that he had not been notified of Mr. McAbee's death, so he could not tell when the inquest, if any, will be held.
I have a little more information on him but so far don't know who his father was.
