Abraham Danehower, the ancestor of extensive land-holding family, came from Germany before 1755, and purchased 136 acres in 1762 of David and Sarah Cumming. He died in 1789, aged 67 years, and his wife, Catharine, in 1796, aged 74 years. His children were George, Abraham, Henry, John, Catharine, Elizabeth and Sarah. George died in 1798, aged 45 years.
