On 25 November 1874, Hannah Abbott died, in Pennsylvania. [source: 12]

He applied successfully for a pension on 20 March 1879. [sources: 2, 7]

He was living with his daughter Dora, and with Alice Stipie. According to a summary of the pension file, whether he and Alice were married was hotly debated. [sources: 6, 12]
