    Notes 
    • Abraham Mabee first is found in Martha Jane Vreeland's letter,
      with Anna/Annice Decker as hia wife. He is found in the 1850
      census with Anna and he is listed as 24 years old. He is found
      in the 1860 census listed as 36 years old and again in the 1870
      census listed as 49 years old, the variance of his age is often
      the case in this time period. His family is found with him on
      the 1850,1860, and 1870 census records. They had 11 children
      with Horace listed as the fifth child. Horace is my direct
      line. His family is found on the 1885 census but he is not. His
      birth place on the the 1850 census is listed as N.Jersey. All
      census records are for West Milford, Passic, New Jersey.
