     He married Sarah Wright on October 6, 1715 in Jamaica, Queens County, New York

    Abraham and Sarah's children included:

    Richard Everett (baptized on August 26, 1716),
    George Everett (baptized on August 26, 1716),
    Wright Everett (baptized on January 24, 1723).

    Eastern Long Island was settled at Southold by English Puritans on October 21, 1640. Western Long Island was Dutch. The Conklins and other related families owned the entire area in the 17th century. The Dutch granted an English settlement in Hempstead (now in Nassau) in 1644. In 1664, the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam became English and was renamed New York.

    Queens County, New York is on Long Island. Jamaica was called Rustdorp by the Dutch. It was originally settled by English settlers from neighboring Hempstead. Hempstead was founded in 1644 by emigrants led by Reverend Richard Denton. Jamaica and Hempstead are now in Nassau County.
