Biography

Birth12 January 1733/34Abraham Holly was born on 12 January 1733/34 in Stamford, Fairfield County, Connecticut.1
Marriage12 January 1758He and Mary Webb were married on 12 January 17582
Residence1765As of 1765 Abraham lived at Hunting Ridge in Stamford, Fairfield County, Connecticut, based on a land record regarding the sale of a right of way to the town for construction of a highway to the Stanwich Meeting House.
Witness6 July 1771He was listed in the probate record of Silas Holly on 6 July 1771 in Stamford, Fairfield County, Connecticut. See Silas Holly for details. Silas made choice of Abraham Holly for his Guardian, although it is recorded as Stephen (which is not possible because Stephen the father was dead and Stephen his brother was younger. Prindle says that there is a £500 bond in the probate file for Abraham, and the Vol. 3 index lists Abraham.)3
Witness12 May 1772Abraham Holly was listed in the probate record of Lois Todd on 12 May 1772 in Stamford, Fairfield County, Connecticut. See Lois Todd for details. she was appointed guardian, with Abr'm Holly of Stamford, of Stephen, Isaac, Jonah and Hannah. (Stamford Probate Records, Vol. 3, p. 487).3
Census1790He appeared in the census 1790 at Hunting Ridge in Stamford, Fairfield County, Connecticut. Abraham is listed as: 2 males over 16 (Elnathan & ?), 1 male under 16 (Jared), 5 females (wife Mary, Rebecca, Elizabeth, Lucy Ann, Abby, Chloe). Neighbors Billy Scofield, Stephen Holly (2/3/3) (son), Stephen Holly Jr. (1/1/3)(nephew), Jonathan, Jesse, Joseph & Noah Waring, Jocob & William White, Ebenezer, Nathaniel & Benjamin Webb,4
Church Affiliation25 May 1796As of 25 May 1796, Abraham was affiliated with Stanwich Congregational Church, in Greenwich, Fairfield, Connecticut. "Record of such as were found in Covenant and Full Communion when Platt Buffett commenced his pastorship over the Church in Stanwich:" and on the first page, "Abraham Holly, and wife of Abraham Holly." They are both marked with # after their names, meaning "Those marked thus # died in good standing in the church."5
Census1800He appeared in the census 1800 at Hunting Ridge in Stamford, Fairfield County, Connecticut. Abraham is listed as: one male 10-15 years (?), one male 16-25 (possibly Jared, who did not marry until 1802 and would be 25 here), one male 45 and up (Abraham, Sr., age 67). Two females ages 16-25 (Abby and Chloe) and two females 45 and up: Mary Webb and ?6
Census1810He appeared in the census 1810 at Hunting Ridge in Stamford, Fairfield County, Connecticut. Abraham is listed as: as 1 male 10-15 years old, 2 males 16 - 25, and 2 males 45 and up. One female age 10-15, one female 16-25, and 2 females 45 and up. I don't know who the male 10-15 is, although Abraham could have had another son, say, 1795, and there is an Abraham of that age in Montgomery and Greene Counties I should investigate. The males 16-25 could be Alanson (age 21) and David a few years younger. David married about 1811. The two older males could be Abraham Sr and Jr., ages 77 and 52. Don't know who the female 10-15 is, could there be another sister after Sarah? Female 16-25 could be Sarah, although she was born in 1783 and would have been 27. However, there is some evidence that she was unmarried in 1831, so she could have been living at home, and two years off is not uncommon. The two older women would be Mary Webb Holly, age 70, and probably Bethia Ambler Holly, age 53. Living next door is Jas. Holly, Abraham, Jr's oldest son. Living near them are the familiar Hunting Ridge family and neighbors, Billy Scofield, John Ingersoll, John Sherwood, Joel Waring, the Todds, etc.7
Will15 November 1815He signed a will on 15 November 1815 in Stamford, Fairfield County, Connecticut. I, Abraham Holly of Stamford in Fairfield County & State of Connecticut being now of a sound disposing mind and memory do make this my last will & testament as follows, I give unto my daughters Mary Rebecca & Lucy five hundred & twenty five dollars to be divided among them.

Position1789As of 1789 Abraham served as Highway Master in Bedford, Westchester County, New York, according to Town Minutes.4
Census1790He appeared in the census 1790 in Bedford, Westchester, New York. Abraham is listed as: 1 male 16+, 1 male under 16, 2 females. Nearby names: Elisha Bates, Abijah Harris, Charles Sellock, Reuben Bailey, Benjamin Ambler. This Abraham does not match the family members we expect. We would expect 2 males under 16, James born 1785 and Alanson born 1789. However, they were in Bedford in 1790. No Abraham shows up in any other Bedford census.

I see many Public Trees on Ancestry showing that his wife Bethia died in 1790. I can't find any source for that, so it may just be whisper down the alley.

But if she did die in 1790, and we know David was born around 1790, either she was not his mother or perhaps she died in childbirth.

When Abraham, Jr. applied for his pension in 1820, he mentions his wife, aged 64. This would fit with Bethia's birthdate in 1757.8
Position1790As of 1790 Abraham served as Highway Master in Bedford, Westchester County, New York, according to Town Minutes.4

Census1800He appeared in the census 1800 at Ward 7 in New York City, New York County, New York. Abraham is listed as: The only potential Abrahm Holly I can find in 1800 is this one in NYC. Doubful, but possible, so I am recording it so I don't lose it. 2 boys under age 10, 1 boy age 10-15, one man 26-44, one woman 26-44.9

Probate Extract as follows: "Holly, Abraham, late of Stamford, will dated Nov. 15, 1815, probated Sept. 3, 1821, mentioned his children Mary, Rebecca, Lucy, Chloe, Jared, and Abraham, children of his daughter Elizabeth, and John, a son of Elnathan, a deceased son. Executor son Jared. Witnesses Sarah Scofield, Anna Scofield, and Reuben Scofield, page 159. Sept. 3, 1821, order to advertise for claims, page 160. Inventory taken Sept. 17, 1821, by William Scofield and Hezron Scofield, and filed Sept. 20, 1821, page 182. Apr. 11, 1822, account filed and real estate ordered sold to pay debts, page 210.

May 24, 1822, estate distributed accordingly, page 223."13
PensionMarch 1825Abraham received his last pension payment in March 1825 in Connecticut. His death date is not listed on the payment ledger. It is possible that he was transferred to a different pension agency in a different state at that time, but I have not found another Abraham in another state picking up payments at that time, so it is likely that he died.

However, on the US Pension Roll of 1835, on Ancestry.com, there is no note of his death. On Fold3, he does not have an entry in the Final Payment Voucher Index.

The last mark for a payment is March of 1825.11
Deathbetween March 1825 and 1830He died between March 1825 and 1830 in Stamford, Fairfield County, Connecticut, He is not listed in the 1830 census, and there are 1831 property transfers by Alanson and Sarah.

Census-not found1790Elnathan has not been found on the census of 1790 Ridgefield, Fairfield County, Connecticut. In this photo of the Second Society (Ridgebury) census, you can see the names that are near Elnathan in the 1800 census.2
Census1800He appeared in the census 1800 in Ridgefield, Fairfield County, Connecticut. Elnathan is listed as: There is an Elnathan Holly in this census, don't know if this is the correct one. This man is 26-44, with two boys in the household, 1 under 10 and one 10-15, and a female 16-25. 2nd name in the census. Neighbors, Stephen Abbott, Ebenezer Rockwell, William Rockwell. This is most likely the Ridgebury area. I started looking at Ridgefield because Abraham, Jr's daughter Sally was "of Ridgefield" in the 1831 land transaction.3
Census1810He appeared in the census 1810 in Redding, Fairfield County, Connecticut. Elnathan is listed as: "Elnathan Hawley", one male 10-15, one male 26-44, one female 26-44. Neighbors Wm Howe, Caleb Keeler, Wm. N. Smith, Aaron Stuart, William Rockwell, Jonah Foster. It seems that Ridgefield has been lumped into Redding for this census.4
