  • Notes 
    • Abraham L. Schermerhorn, son of Lucas R., was one of the representative men of the town of Stuyvesant, N. Y., and made farming his life occupation. He was a model farmer, public spirited and prominent in all community affairs. In 1877, he accepted the nomination for Supervisor and was elected, serving honorably for several years. In 1881 he was chosen to represent his district in the State Assembly and served most satisfactorily, receiving a re-election in 1882. He was a prominent member of the Old Dutch Reformed Church at Muitzeskill, serving as deacon from 1885 to 1891, and elder from 1891 to the time of his death in 1903. He was treasurer of the Church from 1890 to 1903. [1]
