Abner Pease m. (2) Lovicy Allen; b. about 1751; d. 1788 in Stephentown,
He and his second wife joined the Shaker Society of New Lebanon, NY in
It was reported that one of his sons was so opposed to the Shaker
that when he contracted small pox, he purposely brought it into the
household, resulting in the death of Abner and Lovicy. In 1777, During
Revolutionary War, Abner Pease was a deputy sheriff in Albany County. On
way home from Albany, he and a Mr. Sheldon and Mr. White had stopped in
tavern owned by Nicholas Mickle. Mr. White, a Justice, ordered Pease to
arrest a band of Tories who were creating a disturbance in the tavern.
Tories surrendered, and were allowed to go upstairs to retrieve their
belongings. They came down, armed with muskets, and a fight took place,
Abner Pease was wounded in the thigh, and received a gash on the head
from a
cutlass, which scarred him for life. The Tories robbed the three, and
them as hostages into the woods. During the ordeal, Pease fainted from
of blood. A compassionate Tory, John Sloss bound up his wounds with a
of his own shirt, and left Pease in the woods. He was discovered by a
farmer looking for his cows several hours later. The farmer took Pease
his house, nursed him back to health, and lent him a horse to pursue the
Tories. They were captured, and all but John Sloss, who was released
giving witness against them, were hung in Albany. One of the executed
Robert Sloss. The judges at the trial were Richard Morris, Robert Yates,
John Sloss Hobart. Abner Pease was later a Captain of a volunteer
company, formed in Albany County at the time of the Boston Tea Party.
