Perhaps, he first married an Elizabeth La Grange at the Albany Dutch church in September 1788. No christenings have been found for them in the available records of early Albany churches. However, their daughter was christened at the Dutch Jerusalem Reformed church in Feura Bush in January 1796. Then, his second (or first) wife may have been Caty Radliff. Their four children (Lawrence, John, Peter, Abraham) were christened in the Albany church between 1795 and 1802 and are accounted for in the survey documents considered below.
Beginning with the first edition in 1813, Abraham Quackenbush was listed in the city directory as a cooper on Mark Lane or at 44 Dock Street. As late as 1821, the annual directory listed this cooper at 44 Dock Street and his home at 30 Hudson.
