EARLY SETTLERS OF SANGAMON COUNTY - 1876 By John Carroll Powell
JAMES ABRAHAM, born Dec. 16, 1827, in Overton county, Tennessee, raised partly in Sangamon county, married in Tennessee, May 29, 1847, to Jemima Kitchen, and had four children, JAMES M., SARAH E., THOMAS C. and JEMIMA E. Mrs. Jemima Workman died Nov. 10, 1858, and Mr. W. was married May 20, 1860, to Adaline Buck. They have five living children, WILLIAM D., NANCY A., REBECCA A., EMMA E. and GEORGE H. Mr. Workman was a justice of the peace and tax collector in Overton county. Many of his loyal friends had been killed, and his own life threatened by the Ku-Klax, so he left there and returned in 1866 to the vicinity of Loami, Sangamon county, and now--1874--lives in Christian county, near Mowequa, Shelby county, Illinois.
