Hello.

I found this today:

"Old Wills found in Schuyler Co., NY courthouse":

FLEET, ABRAHAM Sr., aged 76 - will dated 14 Aug 1852 - probated date 23 Dec 1852 - Tyrone - wife Elizabeth, 5 children: Ann WOOD, Elsa SWITZER, Marie WOLVERTON, Nelly Jane FLEET, ABRAM FLEET, JR. , John is also mentioned. - executor son Henry S, friend Edwin D Tompkins & Darius Sunderlin - witnessed by Isaac Hill & Nicholas Jessop, both of Tyrone.

"Schyler Co., NY Gazetteer, 1872":

A large number of Irish emigrants settled upon the O'Connor Tract, but after a few years all left but Gen. Kernan. ABRAHAM FLEET, SR., from New Jersey and Capt. John Seabring were among the first settlers near Tyrone Village in 1800; Benjamin Sackett, Thaddeus Gersham, Abraham Bennett and Jonathan Townsend settled about 1801. SIMON FLEET was the first child born in town.

Good luck in your search,

Billie
