Abraham Hoag, son of Stephen, was born in either Oblong or White Creek,Dutchess Co., New Yor k State April 13, 1759. He died in Orchard Park,April 4, 1818. He was a Quaker minister and m oved here from Dutchess Co.in 1814. He married first, _______ Cook; second, Amy Gile or Guile . Shewas a daughter of Joseph and Tibitha Guile or Gile. She was born July 12,1766 and died A ugust 12, 1833. He, and perhaps she, were buried in theold first Quaker Cemetery since remove d. It was located just east acrossnorth Freeman Road from the present cemetery ad joining th e old MeetingHouse. It is said the bodies were removed, but all that can be found wasan old t omb stone leaning against the fence on the west side of thecemetery and the lettering is abou t obliterated after 137 years. Nothingmuch is known of him, except that he came here shortl y after the countrywas opened up and did purchase 116 acres of land on the Armor Road, nearMu rphy Road consisting of 116 acres from Ezekiel Cook for $1500.00. Ihave often wondered if thi s Ezekiel Cook might have been some relation tohis first wife, who was a Cook. A copy of th e deed can be found in Book#21, page 467 in the County Clerk's Office, County Building, Buffa lo, NewYork.
The property was purchased in July, 1815. He died in 1818 and must havedeeded it to his son , Jonathan, who in turn, deeded it to his brother,Robert, in February, 1834. Book #33 page 94 , which describes the exactsame property Abraham purchased in 1815.
