ResidenceJune 1864As of June 1864 Abraham lived at Warner Street in Newport, Newport County, Rhode Island, based on the funeral notice for Celinda's mother.
Occupation1865In 1865 Abraham worked in Newport, Newport County, Rhode Island, as a butcher, who owned a slaughterhouse. The 30 Dec 1865, p.2. Newport Mercury ran an article detailing the business taxes paid by Newport businesses, and mentioned Abraham in the following paragraph:
"The butchers tax on the cattle slaughtered is as follows:
Charles Spooner, $15.45
R.&. M. Stoddard, $10.55
George M. Hazard, $11.40
Abraham H. Tilley, $11.50"
Newspaper Mention23 December 1865The 23 December 1865 edition of the Newport Mercury, Newport, Newport County, Rhode Island, reported "Last Saturday morning about half past ten o'clock the stable of Mr. Abraham H. Tilley, near Warner street, was found to be on fire, and before the firemen could render any assistance, the building was nearly consumed, with two cows, seven tons of hay, two tons of straw, and a lot of farming tools, the whole valued at about $1,000, on which there was no insurance. The firemen succeeded in confining the fire to the barn and the shed. This fire has been attributed to an incendiary, but as is frequently the case with such reports it is false, for it appears that Mr. Tilley's little boy found half a match and lit it while in the barn, and when it burnt his fingers he let it drop among the hay. He was too young to know the consequences, and in a few minutes the building was enveloped in flames. Mr. Tilley has always been a hard working man and the loss falls heavily upon him."

This article was republished on 25 Dec 1915, in the column "Fifty Years Ago".

Tilley, who met with a severe loss about a year and a half ago by the burning of his barn, came near losing his slaughter house Wednesday morning, by the roof talking fire. We learn that the men were hurrying up the fire under the boilers, and the sparks from the chimney fell on to the roof, and before they were aware of the danger, the fire had got well under way. An alarm was given, but before the firemen arrived, the neighbors had succeeded in quenching the fire. He was fully insured."
