Abraham Horton was born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania inn the year of 1722. He was of a Quaker family who settled along the Delaware River twenty or thirty miles north of Philadelphia. He married Martha, surname unknown. In the year of 1770 this Horton family journeyed to North Carolina and settled in that part of Rowan County which became part of Surrey County in 1771. Quakers had formed a settlement here and in that year they established a meeting at Tom's creek near the present Westfield, North Carolina.

Abraham Horton died at Westfield June 1, 1816, and was buried in the Westfield Quaker cemetery in Surry County, North Carolina According to Ronald Bolt of Union City, California

Abraham was a designer & builder of grain mills. He built the mill at Toms Creek in Surry Co., NC. He was dismissed from New Garden Monthly Meeting of Quakers 25 Jul 1778 because he was married out of unity. His will gave all his goods to Jacob BEALS. Will dated 10 Aug. 1813. He MAY have been born in Massachusetts. The Virkus Compendium states that Abraham & Martha gave their first four sons the middle name of "Brissell" in order that the name would be perpetuated.
