About Abraham Winsor

Abraham fought in the War of 1812. Abraham married Sofia Bigelow in Colchester, Connecticut in 1802. The Winsors then settled in the town of Eaton, Madison County, New York, prior to 1805. In 1810, Abraham again moved to the Holland Purchase, locating in Gerry, now Sinclairville, named in honor of Major Sinclair, brother-in-law of Abraham Winsor. Here he built an ashery to engage in the manufacture of pearl and potash, marketing his product in Pittsburgh that he reached by boat. In 1820 he moved to Dexterville where in lumbering. He lived in a log house, but soon purchased a tract of land on which, after clearing the heavy timber, he erected one of the best houses in the village. There he resided until moving to Jamestown, New York where he died. He and his wife Sofia Bigelow are buried in an interesting old cemetery in Levant, New York.
