When John died, his farm was divided for his two surviving sons, Peter and Abram.
Abram's farm was built across the street in 1813.
Like his father, Abram was a farmer but unlike his father, he was also an Abolitionist,
founding member of the Clinton County Anti-Slavery Society and in 1845 he became
the first chaplain at the "Clinton Prison" in Dannemora. Even though baptized in the Ref.
Dutch Church, Abram was ordained a Methodist minister and held church meetings on his farm.
