Some sources also show his name as Abram. Orcutt, in his 'History of Stratford,' gives Abraham's full name as Abraham Blodgett Sears. Since his mother's maiden name was Andrus and his second wife's maiden name was Blodgett, the middle name of Blodgett does not seem to make sense.
27 OCT 1783 Monson, Hampden, Massachusetts Bay Province

Dorothy Peterson research: Has his will and records death as 2 Jun 1858 (matches Wikitree). Her aunt related that "Abraham" belonged to the underground during and after the Civil War (maybe she meant before), helping blacks get to Canada. He must have lived in Cayuga, Tompkins or Cortland co, NY. One time a black man stopped there with a little girl, whom he felt he could not care for. The Sears family kept the child and raised her after they helped the father to escape. Her name was Treen, she worked in NY but came back to the Sears home to be married and had two children.
