Abraham Sickles, Jr.
In 1800, his second ward household consisted solely of a young couple and was located near that of Abraham Sr. Subsequent census returns showed his household with five children - aging through the early 1800s.
By 1813, he (no longer Jr. and noted as still alive in 1854) seems to have settled on Liberty Street in the first ward. At that time, he was identified as a baker. Over the next decades, he was identified as a constable, police constable, and high constable at a number of addresses in what became the Fourth Ward.
During the 1800s, he is said to have been a member and officer of Albany's Mt. Vernon Lodge.
Abraham Sickles, "long known as an efficient officer of the city police, died" in May 1861 at the age of eighty-one.
