Biographical Description
Abraham Staats (1743-1821) was an enslaver who resided in Franklin Township, Somerset County, in the present-day area of South Bound Brook. His wife was Margaret Du Bois (1749-1822). When Abraham and Margaret married in 1770, they moved into a farmhouse that is now known as the Abraham Staats House, and they lived there for the rest of their lives. Several enslaved people lived and worked in the household with the Staats family well into the 19th century.

The Abraham Staats House is now on the National Register of Historic Places and is open to the public for visitation and educational programming. See the Abraham Staats House website for more information about the Staats family and the ongoing historical research and interpretation work at the site.
