Abraham Sinclair
(no known picture)
Sex: Male
Birth: 1800/1810
in Arkansas?
Death: July 4, 1842
probably in Johnson County, Arkansas
Father: Alexander Sinclair
Mother: unknown
Spouse/Partner: unknown
Marriage: unknown

         Abraham Sinclair appears to have been born in Arkansas and appears in a variety of mostly land records dating back to the 1820s in Crawford and Johnson Counties. It appears from court records that he was the son of Alexander Sinclair of the Sinclair-Bean independent fur trapping expedition of 1832. Because Alexander was killed in Wyoming in what is known as the Battle of Pierre's Hole (present day Teton Valley), his heirs had a difficult time proving his death. The case drug on at least 10 years, so long in fact that Abraham died and his children were recorded as the heirs of Alexander.

         Abraham served as sheriff of Johnson County and also ex-officio tax assessor and collector. It was these latter duties which were mentioned in an 1853 court case (Hogins vs. Brashears). Abraham assessed the property taxes in 1842, but died befre he could collect them. This case gives us his death date which we did not previously have. It seems that Abraham's unknown wife died a couple of years earlier, probably while giving birth to their last child.

         I hope to find more info on Abraham Sinclair and his wife in the future, but I have only had moderate success so far.
