Abraham(Abram) DeGroff 1850 NY

Hello Everyone,
Just an update on my DeGroff line. In my search for Elizabeth DeGroff Moore Combs (married Elisha Combs 1867/68), her parents names came to light - Abraham DeGroff and Sylvia Bullis. Abraham has been listed as Abram in several documents. The following is a listing for the family in 1850.

1850 Census, Schuyler Falls, NY
Smith Degroff age 31 farmer b. NY
Haganda(?) age 21 b. NY
Abram age 65 farmer b. NY
Sylvia (Bullis) age 55 b. VT
William age 22 laborer b. NY
Abram age 18 laborer b. NY
Elizabeth age 15 b. NY

Smith Degroff was adopted and raised by Abraham and Sylvia. He shows up in the 1860 census of Plattsburg township, Clinton County, NY.

Does anyone have any info on Abraham and Sylvia in the Schuyler Falls area?
