In 1830, Abraham was counted on the census back in Hemlock, Columbia County, Pennsylvania. Besides himself, counted under “Males 40-49”, there was one older man, age 60-69, living in the home. Also, two boys and one girl under the age of 5, one boy age 5-9, one boy age 10-14, two boys and two girls age 15-19, his wife, age 40-49, and an older woman, age 60-69, perhaps the wife of the older man. Perhaps the elders were the parents of Abraham or Catharine.
In 1840, Abraham’s family was counted on the census in Davidson, at the time a part of Lycoming County, until the creation of Sullivan County in 1847. Abraham and his wife were both counted under the columns for those between the ages of 50 and 60. There was a boy and a girl, both between the ages of 10 and 15, two young men between the ages of 15-20, and one young man age 20-30. Abraham’s sons, Abraham Jr. and Elias are listed further down the page.
