In 1688 he was one of four signers of the anti-slavery petition*. In 1689 he was one of eleven men to whom Penn granted a charter to Germantown. He served as burgess in 1692. It is said he was the most skilled weaver of linen cloth; he won a governer's prize for the first and finest piece of linen.
Abraham Op den Graeff arrived in America 13 Oct 1683, with his brothers and sister, Herman, Dirck, and Margaretha. On 11 Jun 1683 the brothers bought 2000 acres in PA, a part of which was around Germantown, and the remaining along the Perkiomen. Abraham signed in 1688 the protest against slavery. He was a Burgess of Germantown, and a member of the Pennsylvania Assembly. He was immortalized by Whittier in his poem "The Pennsylvania Pilgrim." He was the only one of the family to return to the Mennonite faith. He is also the only brother to have children.

* The First Public Protest Against Slavery in North America, Germantown, Pennsylvania 1688 Historic Marker in Germantown: "Nearly300 years ago, four men joined to write a strong statement against human injustice. They lived in Germantown, now a part of Philadelphia,having come to Pennsylvania only a few years before from their homeland, Germany. All were members of the religious group called the Society of Friends, or Quakers. And on April 28, 1688 they gathered to address the issue of slavery.
Francis Daniel Pastorius, the founder of Germantown in 1683, wrote for the group: 'There is a saying that we shall do to all men like as we will be done ourselves; making no difference of what generation, descent or color they are'. According to Pastorius, Garret Hendricks, Derick up den Graeff, and Abraham up den Graeff, slavery contradicted the Golden Rule. White men did not want to be slaves. Therefore white men had no right to enslave black African men and women.
In Pennsylvania, Pastorius continued, people had 'liberty of conscience' or the right to practice any religion they wished. The privilege did not exist in much of Europe and, in fact, was the reasonwhy so many people left the Old World for William Penn's new colony. Why then, Pastorius asked, would these same people who had suffered oppression oppress those 'who are of a black color?'
"By all standard measures, the Germantown protest failed. Quakers continued to practice slavery in Pennsylvania, as did increasing numbers of non-Quakers. The Germantown protest itself disappeared forover 150 years. It was rediscovered in 1844, a time when the debate over slavery was particularly heated." (From a facsimile printed by Girard Bank in cooperation with the Wyck Association, Philadelphia,1983; from Pers Comm: Frank DeHaven in file Germantown.doc). 
NoteHe Abraham Op den Graef, about 1650-1731

Abraham Isaacs Op den Graef was born in Germany to Mennonite parents, probably between 1649 and 1651, the youngest of four children. He came from a region on the lower Rhine where the German and Dutch cultures mingled. His grandfather, Herman Op Den Graef, was a well-known Mennonite preacher and bishop in Crefeld (also spelled Krefeld), Germany. Abraham married Tryntje Katarina Jansen on July 23, 1679 in the Crefeld Reformed Church in Crefeld, Germany, before he came to America.

On October 6, 1683, Abraham and Tryntje arrived in America on the English schooner Concord after a 75-day journey. They were among a group of 33 people in thirteen Mennonite or Quaker families from Crefeld, Germany. These thirteen families, referred to as the "Original 13" were the founders of Germantown, Pennsylvania, the first sizable, stable, and distinctly German settlement in America. Arriving with Abraham were his older brothers Derick and Hermann, his sister Margrit, and his widowed mother Grietjen, who died a month after their arrival.

While in Germany, these families had made strong ties with the Quakers, in particular with William Penn and Francis Daniel Pastorius, who were recruiting settlers for Penn's "Holy Experiment" in the New World. These were people in religious groups outside the mainstream who were looking for escape from religious persecution, the freedom to settle where they could live simple God-fearing lives, and worship as they pleased. Abraham's father and his siblings converted to Quakerism from the Mennonite faith. Abraham and his two brothers jointly purchased 2,000 acres of land in Germantown from William Penn's agents in Rotterdam prior to their arrival.

The first winter in Germantown, the new settlers dug cellars into the ground and covered them for shelter. Although it was a hard winter, the settlers survived, with the exception of Abraham's mother. They soon built houses of logs, then later of local stone. They raised flax, built looms, and set up spinning wheels. Some of the settlers were accustomed to growing vines and when they saw wild grapes growing, they established vineyards. The settlers worked hard and used their skills in the trades of weaving, tailoring, carpentry, and shoemaking. The Germantown Fair, started in 1701, became a center for exhibiting and selling the products of these craftsmen.

Abraham and Tryntje had the following five children, all believed to have been born in America:

* Gierten OpdenGraef, about 1683-1770, married Richard Adams, 9 children
* Isaac OpdenGraef, ? -1745, married Mary Basilher, 1 child
* Jacob OpdenGraef, about 1687-1750, married Anneke DeHaven, 6 children
* Margaret OpdenGraef, about 1692-1755, married Thomas Howe
* Annica (Ann) OpdenGraef, about 1693-1771, married Herman (Harmon) DeHaven, 10 children

The OpdenGraef brothers (Derrick, Hermann, and Abraham) were weavers of linen. Gabriel Thomas, in Province and County of Pennsylvania, published in 1698, says the brothers made "very fine German linen, such as no Person of quality need be ashamed to wear." Abraham, the youngest of the brothers, was considered the finest weaver of the three.

It has been claimed that Abraham was the subject of the John Greenleaf Whittier poem "The Pennsylvania Pilgrim," written almost 200 years later, in 1872. Stanzas 67 and 68 read:

"Or, talking of old home scenes, Op Den Graaf
Teased the low back-log with his shodden staff,
Till the red embers broke into a laugh

And dance of flame, as if they fain would cheer
The rugged face, half tender, half austere,
Touched with the pathos of a homesick tear!"

Abraham held many positions of importance in Germantown. He served as town burgess in 1692 and was a member of the Provincial Assembly of Pennsylvania in 1689, 1690, and 1691. He was one of the original committeemen and was very involved in local affairs.

In 1688, Abraham was one of four men (Francis Daniel Pastorius and Abraham's brother Derick were two of the others) to sign a resolution in opposition to slavery, which they presented to the Germantown Quakers. This was noteworthy because it was the first protest against slavery made by a religious body. The resolution included the question "Have not these Negroes as much right to fight for their freedom as you have to keep them as slaves?"

In 1692, there was a disagreement among the Quakers over the doctrine of inner light. "Inner light" was the belief that every person had within himself a test of truth on which he could rely, without the binding character of church authority. Abraham took one side and his brother Derick took the other, which led to the brothers parting ways. Abraham eventually converted back to his Mennonite roots.

Unfortunately, over the years, there seems to have been a decline in respect held for Abraham by other settlers in Germantown. His personality seems to have been difficult, and his last years were marked by trouble. He appeared increasingly in court procedures in Germantown, mostly for personal infringements of the law. He was cited and fined for neglecting his fences, for the misdeeds of his children, for letting his hogs run loose, and for verbally abusing people in his community. He was sued for not paying debts he owed to others and was convicted of abusing the bailiff in an open court proceeding. He sued a neighbor for slander when the neighbor declared that "no honest man would be in Abraham's company." Abraham lost the case.

A quote from an OpdenGraef Ancestry page: "DeHaven descents of Abraham OpdenGraef ... [believe] that the emotional intensity, obstinacy, and tendency to alcoholism found throughout the entire DeHaven family group came from the OpdenGraefs, as these are notoriously characteristic traits of that family group." Two of Abraham's children married two of Evert Indenhofen's (DeHaven) children and had a total of 16 children.

In 1704 Abraham and Trintje sold their brick house in Germantown and moved to Van Bebber's Township, a new Mennonite settlement in the Perkiomen/Skippack region of Philadelphia. Abraham purchased a tract of land there in 1709. Details of Abraham's life in this area are scarce.

He died there in 1731 and was buried in the old Mennonite burial ground at Skippack. Deeds show that in 1731 his land was divided between his sons Isaac and Jacob, his daughter Margaret and her husband Thomas Howe, and his daughter Ann and her husband Herman In de Hofen (DeHaven).
