1). mytree.FTW His will is dated 10 11 1764 and proven 9 5 1785 in New York. Abraham of Bushwick in 1761 came into possession of 60 acres of land that extended along the East River, from the old Brooklyn line to a little north of the present day Broadway and from the East River front to near Tenth Street, on which during the early days of 1667 a block house was erected as a resort for the scattered settlers in case hostility from the Indians, upon the high point of land which jutted into the East River about the foot of 4th Street, and which was known in olden times as the Keike of Lookout . In 1693, Kip s executors sold the farm to Jacobus Bobin, a resident of Long Island, who was in until his death about 1741. It is afterward found in the possession of one Abraham Kershow who devised it to his sons Jacob and Martin, who were in possession as late as 1786, when they divided the farm, Jacob taking the northerly and Martin the Southerly halves.
