Abraham Luquer was born in Kings County, NY, the son of Abraham (1725-1764) and Catherine Calyer (1732- ) Luquer. His ancestry was Dutch and either French or French-speaking Belgian. The information that we have about Abraham comes from an application his widow filed for benefits related to her husband's military service in the Revolutionary War. Since he had been dead for many years by the time she filed her application, the file contains affidavits from her sons and from neighbors attesting to the stories Abraham had told them of his service. He was a minuteman and in that capacity was sent to Poughkeepsie where he met his future wife, Mary Sebring. He also told his children and neighbors about his service at the Battle of Trenton and about the retreat after that battle.
On 11 Feb 1787, he married Mary Sebring at the Dutch Reformed Church at New Hackensack, Dutchess County, NY. After their marriage they settled in Montgomery, Orange County, NY, where Abraham ran a mill, apparently a traditional occupation among the Luquers. He and his sons were in business together for many years.
