Obituaries - NJ - 1901 - Abishear A. Sanborn
Abishear A. Sanborn of Lincroft died last Thursday morning of dropsy, aged 65 years and 10 months. He had been sick over a year with paralysis
and about six weeks before his death dropsy set in. The funeral was held at the house on Sunday afternoon. Rev. W. B. Matteson had charge of
the service and the body was buried in Fair View cemetery.
Mr. Sanborn was born in New York state. He went to Lincroft about thirty years ago and bought a farm. His farm adjoined the Chism place,
where grapes had been made a big crop, and Mr. Sanborn set out a large part of his farm in grapes suitable for making wine. He set up machinery
for making wine and soon had an extensive wholesale trade. He was also quite a dealer in honey and at one time he had 200 hives of bees. A
little over five years ago he opened a hotel on his farm.
Mr. Sanborn was twice married. His first wife was Miss Ellen Robinson, a sister of Mrs. John R. Conover of Lincroft. His second wife, who survives
him, was the widow of John VanKirk. He leaves no children. Stephen Sanborn of Red Bank is a brother of Mr. Sanborn.
