Abiathar fought in the Revolutionary War for Massachusetts, his rank was Private. His service record is found in Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors, vol 10, pg 740. Abiathar served under 1) Capt. Ambrose and Lt. Col. Miles Powell, then 2) Capt. Joel Steven and Col. David Roseter. Abiathar's D.A.R. Patriot Number is A078916.

Abiathar md. Tabitha Hopkins on September 30, 1761 in Amenia, New York, by May 1763 they resided in Quaker Hill, Dutchess Co., NY; by March 1765 in the Province of New Jersey; by October 1768 in Williamstown, Berkshire Co., Massachusetts; by March 1773 in Richmond, Berkshire Co.; by January 1775 in Pittsfield, Berkshire Co.; and by April 1787 in Pittsford, Rutland Co., Vermont. How they ended up in Vermont was that apparently Tabitha's family encouraged Abiathar to settle in Pittsford.

On April 11, 1788, Abiathar bought Lot No. 9 of the Town Plot in Pittsford. He cleared the land and built their home, which was about the fourth house on "Blackberry Hill." They were in Pittsford for the 1790 and 1800 Censuses, Abiathar was a library subscriber on 1796. In between attending to the area's medical needs, Abiathar was also a land speculator.

Abiathar had removed from Pittsford ca 1808, Nathan Hawley bought Abiathar's place from John Merrian on October 24, 1809. Abiathar died in Penfield in 1811.

Abiathar's burial location would be certain if his remains had not been moved from his original interment location. As this blog entry explains, early on there was a school house at the corner of Penfield Road and Five Mile Line Road - West of that school house was Penfield's old cemetery.

Ca 1825, "the old cemetery was dug up and those graves that could be claimed were removed to Oakwood. There remained the bones of 60 individuals that would have been placed in bone boxes and buried" first under what was a church, which then became apartments and is now a business.
