    Anecdote 1832  [5
    • "John P. Mabee was elected town clerk in 1832. He wrote a
      peculiar, plain, handsome hand. For some years he was a
      partner with A. H. Buell, in the merchandise business. He was
      the son of Peter Mabee and a man of ability. He married Miss
      Maria Easton; from Norway he emigrated to the State of Ohio,
      where he died relatively young, leaving no male descendants.
      Dr. Peter Mabee at one time owned the farm on the state road
      now occupied by James P. McLaughlin. He died at Ballston
      Springs in 1825, whither he had gone in quest of health. His
      wife was Margaret Service, a sister of William H. and Philip
      Service; she lived to a good old age and died in Norway in
      1870. One of their daughters, Alida married Dr. Walter Booth
      and is living: the other, Susan, married William Vandenburgh,
      and died two years since. Simon Mabee, a brother of the Doctor
      was a merchant at Fairfield and Little Falls. We think there
      are no male descendants of either family now living in this
      vicinity. The following newspaper clipping we presume may
      refer to their ancestors: 'The Schenectady Star' says: About 6
      and a half miles west of that city, on the south side of the
      Mohawk, the Mabee family settled about 200 years ago. The
      house where they now live was built over thirty years previous
      to 1720, and has been occupied by the same family for six
      generations."
