In the 1880 U.S. Census for Bloomington, Bear Lake County, Idaho, Abraham Welker was 5 years old, and was living with his mother, Susannah C. Welker, age 48, and his siblings, Isabella J., 15, Susan E., 14, Francis M., 10, Sarah, 12, Harrison A., 7, and his twin sisters, Catherine and Caroline, age 3. The twin girls died the following year in 1881 of diptheria. His father, James Wilburn Welker, age 55, is living three doors down with his first wife, Annie Pugh Welker, and some of their children, Wilburn, age 23, Ephraim, 20, and Rebecca Ann, 16. Since Abraham's parents were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, his father was a polygamist with two wives.

In the 1900 U.S. Federal Census for Bloomington, Bear Lake County, Idaho, Abraham age 24 and his older brother, Harrison A., age 28, are living with their mother Susannah Caroline and now their father James Wilburn Welker, age 75 is also living in their home.

In 1910, Abraham is 34 years old, living by himself in Oxford, Bannock, Idaho. He is single and is working as a farmer on his own farm.
