Miles' mother-in-law Elizabeth Gunels Scribner Haisley died in 1913
"Mrs. Elizabeth HAISLEY, who formerly resided in Waverly, died at her home in Franklin, of old age, Friday July 25, 1913, at the age of 87 years, 4 months and 6 days.
Elizabeth H. GUNELS was born March 19, 1826 in the state of Kentucky; her parents being of the hardy pioneers of that state. She grew to young womanhood in her native state, sharing the hardships and privations of that early period. At the age of 19 years she was married to William H. SCRIBNER in Kentucky on Jan. 16, 1846. The young couple shortly thereafter moved to Waverly, Ill.
There were born to them four children: Jennie, Tennessee H., Malveny, and Wesley L.
In the latter part of June, 1855 a family passing through Waverly by wagon stopped at their home and sought assistance, a child of the family having died. They were received without hesitation into the home, and it immediately developed that the child had died of cholera. Within a few days Mr. and Mrs. SCRIBNER and all of the children except the four months old infant Wesley were stricken with the dreadful disease, and on July 4, 5, and 6, Mr. SCRIBNER and the daughters Tennessee and Malveny died. The widow barely escaped death, and was left with Wesley and the daughter Jennie, then seven years of age. Those two children she raised to manhood and womanhood and educated by her individual efforts and with great sacrifice and hardship. Then she sustained further great sorrow of the loss of her son Wesley who died at the age of 19 years.
On April 8, 1873, Mrs. SCRIBNER was married at Waverly to John HAISLEY, where they continued to reside until 1889 when they removed to Franklin. Mr. HAISLEY died July 1, 1901
Mrs. HAISLEY'S daughter Jennie married Miles J. ABBOTT at Waverly in 1871, and she died in 1898. Her children Mrs. A. D. LANE of Omaha, Neb., Mrs. E. L. STANFIELD of Norfolk, Neb., and Charles E. ABBOTT of Fremont, Neb., are the surviving relatives.
At the early age of 17 years Mrs. HAISLEY was converted and for 70 years led an earnest Christian life. At the time of her death she was a member of the Congregational church of Waverly.
Brief services were held at the residence in Franklin at 1 o'clock Tuesday, July 29, Rev. Peter KITTEL of the Franklin M. E. church officiating. Music was furnished by the choir of the M. E. church, which sang several of Mrs. HAISLEY'S favorite hymns. The body was then brought to Waverly and funeral services conducted in the Congregational church by the pastor, Rev. L. A. HOLP. Music was furnished by the Congregational choir. The pall bearers were F. H. WEMPLE, J. C. DEATHERAGE and I. H. COE of Waverly, Thomas MILLER, Lee CALDWELL and J. B. BURCH of Franklin. Interment was in East cemetery.
Jane P. Scribner married Edward W. Deatheridge 1838-1866.
A large number of friends were in attendance at the funeral, many being present from both Franklin and Waverly. "
1906 Norfolk Nebraska "Mrs. Stanfield is still quite seriously ill with heart trouble. Mrs. A. G. Lane of Omaha, her sister, and George Abbott of Fremont, her brother, are in the city, having come because of illness."
Charles E. Abbott was graduated as member of the class of 1897 in the law department of the University of Nebraska, and on the 1st of January of the following year he established his residence at Fremont, judicial center of Dodge County. Within the intervening period of nearly a quarter of a century he has here clearly demonstrated his ability as a lawyer and counselor, and he has long controlled a substantial and representative law business, as one of the leading members of the Dodge County bar. He gave about twelve years of effective service as city attorney of Fremont and is now president of the Fremont Commercial Club, an organization of state-wide reputation for business ideals and progressive policies. Mr. Abbott is deeply appreciative of the advan- tages and attractions of his home city and county, and aside from the activities of his profession he has become closely assocated with agricul- tural industry of the county, as the owner of 600 acres of valuable and well-improved farm land. He is a stanch advocate of the principles and policies for which the republican party stands sponsor and is affil- iated with the Masonic fraternity, the Independent Order of Odd Fel- lows and the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks.
Mr. Abbott was born at Taylorville. Illinois, on December 1, 1871, and is a son of Miles J. and Jennie (Scribner) Abbott. Miles J. Abbott had been a newspaper publisher in Illinois and in 1879 he came with his family to Nebraska and settled near Hastings, Adams County. In 1885 he moved to western Nebraska and was prominently concerned with the organization of Hayes County, and published a weekly newspaper at Hayes Center, the county seat, for twenty years. He engaged also in the practice of law and was for many years one of the most prominent and influential citizens of Hayes County, where his protracted incumbency of public office included service as county attorney and county judge.
November 28, 1900, at Fremont, was recorded the marriage of Charles E. Abbott to Miss Gertrude Sexton, daughter of Dr. Thomas C. and Emma (Peters) Sexton, her father having been a pioneer physician in Washington County, where he established his home in 1865, about two years prior to the admission of Nebraska to statehood. Dr. and Mrs. Sexton are now venerable and revered pioneer citizens of Fremont, and it is practically assured that Mrs. Sexton is now the oldest native-born citizen still residing in Dodge County. Mr. and Mrs. Abbott have two children — Katherine and Charles Wade.
The Arizona Daily Star, Tucson, 12 April 2012 William E. Kimble 85, a longtime Tucsonan and prominent retired attorney and judge, passed away peacefully at his home in Tucson on April 6, 2012 surrounded by his family.
Bill was born on May 4, 1926 in Denver, Colo., the son of George and Grace Ellen Kimble (nee Fick). As a boy, he moved with his parents and brother Robert to Arizona, eventually settling in Tucson. After graduating from Tucson High School in 1944, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving as a sonarman aboard the destroyer U.S.S. J.C. Owens in the Pacific Theater from 1944 to 1946. He was in Okinawa when the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, and was among those American servicemen spared from fighting a protracted war with Japan.
Upon returning to civilian life, Bill enrolled at the University of Arizona, where he met the love of his life, Jean Margaret Cayia. They wedded SS. Peter & Paul Church on December 27, 1950, beginning a marriage that would last more than 61 years and produce seven sons. Bill received his degree from the UA College of Law in 1951 and accepted a job as special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation that took him and Jean to International Falls, Minn. After enduring a northern Minnesota winter, they eagerly returned to Arizona, where Bill and Jean lived for the remainder of his life.
In 1952, now with a wife and infant son, Bill settled in Bisbee, as a partner in the law firm of Gentry, McNulty & Kimble. In 1956, Bill ventured into political life - running as the Republican nominee for Arizona attorney general. In 1958, he was appointed to the Arizona Oil & Gas Commission. In 1960, Bill was appointed Superior Court judge for Cochise County. He ran for and was elected to the office later that year. However, his love of the law was greater than his love for politicking for the position. He recounted a low point in his campaign when in a Tombstone bar, one citizen approached him, "So you're a politician, are you? How about buying me a drink?" When Bill declined, the man glared at him and replied, "You won't buy me a drink? What kind of a politician are you?"
Two years later, with a growing family to support, Bill returned to private law practice and moved his family to Tucson. Bill was a partner with the law firm Lesher & Kimble from 1962 to 1982. In 1964, he ran on the Republican ticket against freshman Congressman Morris Udall - making campaign appearances across the district with Barry Goldwater, his party's candidate for president. Although he lost that election, he developed a friendship with Udall and - although steadfastly Republican throughout his life - served as Udall's honorary campaign co-chair near the end of the congressman's tenure, contending that southern Arizona had been well served by Mo Udall.
From 1982 until his retirement in 1991, Bill was the senior partner in his own firm. He tried more than 500 jury cases, while teaching for over 20 years at the UA College of Law. He was a recognized legal authority in the area of products liability. He authored the legal treatise "Federal Consumer Products Safety Act" and co-authored, with his law partner Robert O. Lesher, "Products Liability," both published by West Publishing Co. He was senior editor of "Products Liability Alert," newsletter published by Harcourt, Brace, Javonovich; and editor/publisher of "IDEA: In Defense of Electrical Accidents," a national quarterly newsletter for electric utilities and their counsel.
Bill was a founding member of the American Bar Association Foundation, the U.S. Navy War College Foundation, the UA College of Law Alumni Association, the McCormick Society for Law and Public Affairs and the local organization F.A.M.E. - a small group of prominent local citizens, headed by William R. Mathews, publisher of the Arizona Daily Star, which recognized the need for an Arizona medical school, and undertook to raise seed money to establish that school at the UA. The group was successful in raising a substantial amount of money and convincing the Legislature of the need for a medical college, and the desirability of locating it in Tucson. Bill also was a fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers and a diplomat in the American Board of Trial Advocates.
Along with his family, Arizona, and the law, Bill was passionate in his love for Shakespeare and travel. His personal library was filled with works by and about William Shakespeare, along with etchings and busts of the writer. With Jean, he traveled to every corner or the world - from Italy to Guatemala, from China to Chile, and from New Zealand to Scotland's Outer Hebrides - developing an appreciation for other lands, cultures, and cuisines.
He is predeceased by his youngest son, Michael.
