Abner Peabody

Abner is a family man; husband of ‘Lizabeth and papa to Little Pearl. He tends to be a literal thinker, often not understanding Lum’s more fanciful “ol’ Ed’ards sayin’ses.” He has gray hair and blue eyes. He wears spectacles.

The Peabodys live in the white house north of the Quincys; the one with the big sycamore tree in the front yard. Abner’s 60-acre farm adjoins Lum’s. Dead Stump Hill is behind Abner’s place.
