    • The Mabee party, it is said, started for Upper Canada in the

      but Mrs. Mabee and her family were living there in a
      comfortable log-house at the time of Governor Simcoe's visit in
      1795. The grave of Frederick Mabee was there also, and a piece
      of ground known as the "Indian fields" had been cleared of its
      light growth of timber and cropped; all of which makes it
      appear quite reasonable that the family may have settled there,
      at least as early as 1793.

      Mabee, their eldest son, aged about nineteen; Simeon, the

      aged about twelve - at least, these were the ages of the sons
      at the time of the Governor's visit; two single daughters -
