There is available a copy of his signature traced from a lease to him by Stephen Van Rensselaer, Esquire, of 147 acres o fland in Rensselaerwyck. The lease bears date December 30, 1790, when Abraham was 62 years old. It seems apparent that this 1790 ease of land was made to enable his only son (Obadiah A.) who was married in 1789 to establish a home of his own, as he and his father are listed separately in the 1800 census. On May 13, 1801, Abraham Cooper and his son bought, jointly from Stephen Van rensselaeer, a farm of 168 acres at Guilderland, Albany Co.9see Albany county Book of Deeds 24, p. 115) On June 6, 1801, Abraham, his son, and his son's wife (Elizabeth Ostrander) were "receied as members ini full communion" of the Helderberg Reformed Dutch Church at Guilderland Center,Albany Co. and at that Church Obadiah A. later served as Deacon and his three younger children were baptized, all according to the record book of the Church.
