  • Name Mary Mabie 
    Born 27 Sep 1771  Beekman, Dutchess County, New York Find all individuals with events at this location  [1
    Gender Female 
    No Name 10 Jul 1784  Belle Hill in Beaver Harbour, , Ontario, Canada Find all individuals with events at this location  [2
    • Mary Mabie appeared on the census of 10 Jul 1784 in the
      household of Frederick Mabee and Lavinia Pelham Belle Hill in
      Beaver Harbour, Ontario, Canada
    No Name 1792  [3
    • The Mabee party, it is said, started for Upper Canada in the
      fall of 1792, but they wintered in Quebec and did not reach
      Turkey Point until some time in 1793. They drove twelve cows,
      rode horses, and employed an Indian guide to pilot the way
      through the wilderness
      Some members of the family claim that the settlement was made
      as early as 1791, while others say it was not made before 1794;
      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.
      The Mabee party consisted of Frederick Mabee and wife; Oliver
      Mabee, their eldest son, aged about nineteen; Simeon, the
      second son, aged about seventeen; Pellum, the youngest son,
      aged about twelve - at least, these were the ages of the sons
      at the time of the Governor's visit; two single daughters -
      Polly and Sally; and two married daughters - Nancy and Lydia,
      with their respective husbands - John Stone and Peter Teeple.
      It is said that Peter Secord, also, came with the Mabee family
