At the time of the Revolution there was almost no inhabitants in the area that was to become Greene County, except along the Hudson River. It was not until after the war that the movement westward began and pioneers came in to take up land back from the river and in the Catskills. In 1800 the towns of Coxsackie, New Baltimore, Athens, Cairo, Greenville and Durham were taken from Albany County, and the towns of Catskill and Windham (and a portion of Woodstock) later to be divided into the towns of Catskill, Hunter, Lexington, Jewett, Halcott, Windham, Ashland and Prattsville, were taken from Ulster County to form Greene County, names in honor of General Nathaniel Greene, of Revolutionary fame.

The sections along the west bank of the Hudson, where military units were organized during the war, were designated simply as the Coxsackie District and the Great Imboght (southern Catskill) District. It will be understood, then, that aside from the river towns, the places of residence indicated are the towns as they exist today.

Anthony Abeel, Catskill
Son of David and Nieltje Abeel, born at Catskill, October 9, 1757, died there February 25, 1822.

Because of his age, David was released and sent home on parole, but Anthony was made to run the gauntlet and was held prisoner for two years until he escaped and, after much hardship, finally reached home.
