About Abraham Castor
Abraham bap. July 4, 1747. m. May 15, 1776, Elizabeth
Hendricks. He was taxed in the year 1779 as a resident of Lowfer Dublin Township, Philadelphia County, and his payment was 5 shillings. In 1782 his property was valued at 50 shillings and he paid to the State 7 shillings and 8 pence. In 1783 he was taxed on 125 acres, 2 horses, 2 cattle and 2 sheep, all in Abington Township.
He left twin daughters, b. Feb. 18, 1782. One of these was Hannah, who m. Thomas Funston. Thomas was b. Feb. 19, 1788, and d. June 20, 1829. Hannah d. June 25, 1883. Her twin survived her. This is a most unusual occurence. Hannah lived to be over 101 years of age (the record is on her headstone in Cedar Hill Cemetery) and her twin lived after her death. Mr. Charles Deal is the authority for the fact that Hannah's twin survived her. I have been unable to secure any record of her death. Abraham had other issue, but it is believed that none of them reached maturity. Three daughters and a son are mentioned in the Presbyterian
Church records as being interred in the yard of that Church.
