Greenwitch, Abner (Mother of)
Mother of Abner Greenwitch - Yampa Leader - April 27, 1907 - Sad Awakening - Thoughtless son will return to vacant home - Mother in Pauper's Grave - He Brings Back a Fortune, but no Welcome from Mother Will Greet Him - Pueblo, Colo. - Ten years ago Abner Greenwich, a lad of seventeen, disappeared mysteriously from his home in Pueblo. His mother, a widow, believed he had been murdered. The police of Pueblo and other cities searched for him but without finding a clew [sic] which would lead to the explanation of the mystery, and in a year the disappearance of Abner Greenwitch was forgotten, for the haunting face of the mother was seen no longer at the police station, seeking news of her boy. She had died of grief. Now comes the reappearance of Abner Greenwitch, who, in a letter written from Peru to a boyhood friend, John McGovern, says he is returning with a fortune of $1,000,000 gleaned from the pestilential swamps of Peru and the sands of its fever-ridden rivers. “I am coming home,” he says, “with a million to make my mother's last days happy,” not knowing that all the millions in the world could not have atoned for one hour of the agony which his mother spent in her lonely search for her son. “She shall have everything that money can buy, but I want my arrival to be a surprise to her.” Little does Greenwitch know that he will be unable with all his wealth to ever buy a stone to make his mother's last, resting place, for she sleeps with the unknown dead, and that in all the world there is no person who will feel a mother's joy at the return of a wandering son. Of all these things Abner Greenwitch knows nothing. It is enough for him now that he has $1,000,000, and that when as a boy reading forbidden tales of adventure, he told John McGovern that some day he would disappear and not return until he had $1,000,000, he had meant what he said. According to the story of Greenwitch, he has paid dearly for his wealth. The fever of the tropics has turned his hair gray and is face is wrinkled like that of an old man. “I am afraid,” he says, “to see a looking glass. Once I saw my face in a pool near my camp, and its appearance frightened me, but I guess mother will know me, anyhow.” Greenwitch says that tiring of school and poorly paid work, he carried out is expressed determination to disappear and not return until he had $1,000,000. With the carelessness and cruelty of boyhood, he never once thought of the sorrow he would cause his mother, but, meeting a young college graduate from Chicago, he stealthily left Pueblo, and, reaching New Orleans, sailed with his companion on a ship bound for Peru. For the first three years they suffered all the privations of hunger, thirst and fever, and found themselves further handicapped by their ignorance of the native language. Then, becoming familiar with the country and its customs, they plunged into the wilderness and engaged in the rubber business. “Until my arrival at Lima a month ago,” he says, “for seven years I had seen no white face, save that of my partner. “Now my last dollar of the million has been made. My partner has a like account and a month hence we will be in Colorado, when I shall endeavor to make amends to mother for my conduct in leaving like I did.”
