Abraham Jacobse Truax1,2
b. 04 Apr 1737
Pedigree

     Abraham Jacobse Truax was the son of Jacob Truax and Lysbet de la Grange. Abraham Jacobse Truax was born on 4 April 1737 at Schenectady, NY. He was baptized on 8 July 1737 at Schenectady, NY.2 He married Elizabeth Van Antwerp, daughter of Harmanus Janse Van Antwerp and Neeltje Van Antwerp, on 27 March 1761 at Schenectady, NY.
Abraham Jacobse Truax served as a Pvt. 2nd Regiment, Albany Co. Militia (or may have been a different Abraham J. Truax). He ‘prayed for land’ in Whitton Township, QC in July 1795.

The D.A.R., most genealogies, and several histories of the area claim that Abraham Jacobse Truax served in the Second Regiment of the Albany County Militia, and participated in several battles. This seems odd given that he moved to Quebec just a couple of years behind his brother Elias, and that several of his children married into prominent Loyalist families. There was an Abraham J. Truax who appears in the rolls of the 2nd Regiment, but there were a lot Abraham Truaxs in the area, even a few with the middle initial J or I. Abraham Jellis Truax (Volume I, #276) was closely related (brother or first cousin) to all of the other Truaxs who served in the 2nd Regiment of the Albany County Militia – much more closely than Abraham Jacobse Truax was – and I believe that it was he, and not Abraham Jacobse, who served in the Albany County Militia.

The main piece of evidence in all this is a pension application made by Elizabeth Truax, widow of Abraham (National Archives #R.10718). It has always been assumed that this was Elizabeth Van Antwerp; however, Abraham Jellis Truax lived in the same area at the same time and was married to Elizabeth Van Slice. The application was made in 1834, which, if it were made by Elizabeth Van Antwerp, would have made her 93 years old at the time (Elizabeth Van Slice would only have been 81). Also, the application was made from Watervliet, New York, even though Abraham Jacobse and Elizabeth Van Antwerp had moved to Quebec many years before. She may have moved back after his death, but it seems unlikely.

Whichever side he was on, some time around 1795 Abraham moved most of his family north into Missisquoi County in the Eastern Townships region of Quebec, an area heavily populated with United Empire Loyalists. He would have been about 58 years old by then, and most of his children (except for Abraham Jr.) would have been adults.

From the Eaton Register:

“An Hundred Years Old”
Departed this life, on the 11the of February, 1855 at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Lydia Larsh, in Dixon Twp., Preble Co., Ohio, DAVID TRUAX, Sen., at the advanced age of one hundred years, less eight days. The deceased was born February 19, 1755, in Morris County, New Jersey. At the age of 14 years, his parents moved to Louden County, Virginia, where he continued to reside till the close of the War of the Revolution in which he served his oppressed country in the “tented fileds and battle’s storm”. Thence he emigrated to Washington Co., Penn. Again in 1792, he penetrated the wilds of the West and located first in Fayette and then Adair County, Kentucky, where he remained until the year 1809, when he removed to what is now Dixon Twp. (then not organized) in this county, where he “pitched his tent” for the residue of his long and eventful life. When the War of 1812 broke out he was “anxious and willing” again to do service in the defence of his own and his neighbors’ hearthstones, whose quiet was often assailed by the cruelties of the Indian warfare. But by previous exposure, having partially lost his hearing, he had to remain at home, yet took great interest in arming and equipping three of his four sons (two of them in their “teens”) for the Army of the Northwest commanded by the lamented Gen. Harrison. The writer of this note recollects with pleasure the enthusiasm manifested by this Revolutionary Patriot, in consoling the weeping wife and wailing mothers, when taking leave of their loved ones and cheering the “beardless braves” as they were deployed into line by their Captain (D.E. Hendricks). The deceased voted at every Presidential election, since the organization of the Government to the present – voted for Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Clay, Harrison, Taylor, and Scott; was the father of six children, only four of whom survive him; and died as he had lived, at peace with the world and its Creator. Eternal peace to his remains.
