Sylvester Kinsman Abbott (December 9, 1831 - June 14, 1890) was a Massachusetts based businessman, land speculator, and bookbinder active in the late 19th century. Abbott was born in Bedford, Massachusetts and lived most of his life in nearby Malden. In the late 19th century, he became involved in the Petit Manan Land Company, a real-estate investment in Maine intended as a rival to Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island. The investment was already floundering when he died, but judging from his enormous, monumental tombstone at Forest Dale Cemetery in Malden, he was quite wealthy.
