Brokaw, Abram a minister of the Reformed (Dutch) Church, graduated at Queens (now Rutgers) College in 1793. He studied theology under Dr. J.H. Livingston. He was pastor at Owasco, Cayuga County, N.Y., 1796-1808; Ovid, Seneca County, 1808-22, when he was suspended. About this time it seems this Church seceded, and he went with it. He maintained this position till his death, in 1846. See Corwin, Manual of the Ref. Church (3d ed.), page 197.
