Gabriel William Ludlum

Birth8 APR 1801
Death20 JUN 1872
Aged: 71.2 years
From Kingston historian Edwin Millard Ford's book Street Whys: Anecdotes and Lore About the Streets of Kingston, New York, page 145:
Highland Avenue

"When Judge Gabriel W. Ludlum purchased land in 1835, in what is now central Kingston, he was no stranger here. His wife, Catharine Hasbrouck, whom he married in 1823, was the daughter of Abraham J. Hasbrouck known as "Abraham of the Strand," a prominent merchant for 50 years as well as a one term congressman. After ventures in other communities, Gabriel Ludlum settled in Rondout in 1851, building a large flour mill on Ferry Street. He purchased substanstial acreage as shown on an 1868 map surveyed by Charles V. Quillard and titled G.W. Ludlum's Clifton Lots. This area extends from Chester Street on the east, Clifton Avenue on the west, Hasbrouck Avenue on the south, to pronbably what is now Sylvester Street on the north. Highland Avenuw was originally called Bruyn Street, which was a name in Catherine Ludlum's family.
Judge Gabriel W. Ludlum was killed by a fall from a horse on June 20, 1872, at Healdsburg, California, at age 71."

Brook Street

"Map No. 20 dated June 25, 1857 by William H. Dederick shows the George Schick Bone Factory in Wilbur. On Noember 22, 1866, an application to the Village of Rondout was made for a street leading to Gabriel Ludlum's gristmill and crossing the Twaalfskill Brook which was called the 'outlet of the big meadow.' This street was formerly called Bone Factory Road but, by Kingston city ordinance, the name was changed to Brook Street on April 3, 1874."

Lawrence Street

"When Judge Gabriel W. Ludlum finally settled in Kingston in 1868, he laid out lots in sections called Wiltwyck and Clifton Park, with streets named for family members. Map No. 256 in the Ulster County Clerk's Office, drawn and surveyed by George Van Etten, shows Hemlock Avenue terminating at Lawrence Street. The judge named this street for his mother, Mary Lawrence. 
By 1968, Lawrence Street had been demolished to make way for the arterial highway named Francis R. Koenig Boulevard."

Catharine Hasbrouck

Birth13 MAY 1805
Death28 JUL 1885
Aged: 80.2 years
Catharine Street in Kingston, New York

From Kingston historian Edwin Millard Ford's book Street Whys: Anecdotes and Lore About the Streets of Kingston:
"First names given to streets present a formidable task to solve when there is no documentation available. Catharine Street is a good example. Two of the likeliest sources of the name Catharine are [1] Catherine Ann Woodmansee, wife of Thomas Cornell or [2] Catharine Hasbrouck, daughter of Abraham J. Hasbrouck. Abraham J. Hasbrouck was known as "Abraham of the Strand" for more than 50 years. Catherine's brother was Jansen Hasbrouck who with Catharine's husband, Judge Gabriel Ludlum, became trustees of Abraham's estate following his death in 1845. Thomas Cornell did not purchase land in Rondout until 1849 and Catharine Street was already mentioned in an earlier deed. The Hasbroucks had an inclination to name streets included in their holdings for family members. An educated guess is that Catharine Street was named for Catharine Hasbrouck Ludlum.
