About Col. Abraham Hasbrouck

NASDAR Ancestor #: A052269

Abraham Hasbrouck was born in 1707, in Guilford, New York, just outside of New Paltz in Ulster County.

Abraham recorded, in a diary he kept most of his life, that the farm was devastated by hail. The orchards were hit hard, and the rye destroyed. If the storm was not enough, locusts wreaked more havoc. After helping his mother run his late father’s farm, Abraham decided to leave the farm in his 27th year. In 1734 Abraham decided to leave the farm and journeyed to Boston, Massachusetts by way of New York City. In Boston he pursued the life of a merchant. His diary states that he returned to Guilford the next winter, and by June 1735 he permanently settled in Kingston, where he would spend the rest of his life engaged in “trade & traffick.” Where and when he met his future wife Catharine Bruyn is lost to time, but they married January 5, 1738/39. Their first child would be born in 1740, followed by Elise in 1741, Joseph in 1743, and Geertruy in 1746. A second Geertruy would be born in 1747 after her sister of the same name died in 1746. This would also be true of Cathrina who died in 1747, and a second daughter of the same name was born in 1748. These births were followed by Marie in 1751, Jacobus two years later, Abraham in 1756, Daniel in 1758, followed by another son named Daniel in 1760 when his namesake died. The last child born was Jonathan in 1763.
