Family of Abraham VANGORDER and Polly TERWILLIGER
Abraham VANGORDER b. 1764 Oct 14 at Newburgh, NY. d. after 1840 Jun 1661.
The birth record for Cornelia Van Gorden lists her parents' names, including her mother's maiden name.
Abraham's last name appears variously as VanGorder, Van Gorden and Van Garden. His death date is listed in many genealogies as 1837 (without reference), which is incorrect. The 1840 census, enumerated as of June 1, 1840, for Bradford, Steuben Co., NY, lists Abraham Vangorder, age 75, in the family of James Barclay as a Revolutionary War Pensioner, "included in the foregoing." The "foregoing," in this case, is the listing for James Barclay, which includes a male of age 70 and under 80. All other entries in that family listing match, without exception, the family of James and his wife Cornelia (VanGorder) Barkley listed herein.
Abraham Van Gorder appears4420 in the list of New York Pensioners, 1835, in Steuben Co., NY. He served in the New Jersey militia, commenced his pension Mar 4, 1831, and was placed on the pension roll Aug 3, 1833. His application stated "Abrahm Van Gorder a resident of the town of Tyrone in said County of Stebuen and State of New York aged sixty nine years in October next … was born on the fourteenth of October in the year one thousand seven hundred and sixty four (1764) at Newburgh in the State of New York - that he has no record of his age."
