Abraham Denston 1

  • Born: Abt 1744, Worcester Co., MD
  • Died: 1794-1814, Worcester Co., MD


Abraham Denston is listed in Captain Bennett's Worcester County Militia Company of the Wicomico Battalion on Jul 15 1780.

Abraham Denston may not have had issue since we know that he bequeathed his land to his nephew, Isaac Denston, before 1815 (WoLR-AE:566). See details under his name. Abraham Denston had 142 acres of land surveyed for him in 1794. The tract included tracts "Second Choice" originally surveyed as 50 acres for his father Isaac Denston in 1760 and added 90 acres of vacant land and calling the total "Friendship." This is located where old Friendship U.M. Church was built in 1866 and still stands in 2017.
