Abraham Cooper was born in February 1728. He was the son of Obadiah and Cornelia Gardinier Cooper. He grew up in a large family in a modest home on the Southside of Albany . His father died in 1742 and his mother six years later - leaving him a complete orphan at the age of twenty..
In March 1752, he married Catharina Ostrander of Rensselaerswyck at the Albany Dutch church. By 1766, ten children had been christened in Albany where he was an occasional baptism sponsor. His wife may have died about the time of the birth of their last child.
We seek information on his later life and passing.
