Abraham would have been about 12 years old at the time of the 1800 census if he was born in 1788. Therefore, if he was included on that census, he would have been counted in the 2nd column of the census page, under “Males 10-15”. A match has yet to be found.
In 1810 Abraham Reese appears on the census in Hemlock, Northumberland County (now Columbia County), Pennsylvania. The home contained two boys under the age of 10, and Abraham and his wife, both between the ages of 16 and 25.
In 1820, when he was about 32 years old, Abraham’s family was counted on the census in Madison, Columbia County, Pennsylvania. He and his wife had nine children in the home already. There were three boys and two girls under the age of 10, two boys and one girl age 10-15, one young man age 16-25, and Abraham and his wife, both between the ages of 26 and 44. The families are shown in the Pennsylvania Septennial Census of Madison in 1821.
