Abraham Tevoe [also Dafoe] was baptized on 11 May 1755 in Albany's Reformed Dutch Church, the son Johan Ernst and Maria (Keller) Tevoe [Dafoe].  He married Katreen --?-- in about 1775, and they had six children.  

Abraham and Katreen (--?--) Dafoe are my 5th great-grandparents, through their daughter Mary Dafoe (1776-18232), who married John Kemp (1768-1864) in 1795.
