    • Steve Mabie, a noted Mabie researcher has a long-standing
      concern about Silas Mabee and the compilation of his children,
      particularly as contained in Mutrie's book. He has found Silas
      and family in the US Federal Census for 1790, 1800 (both in
      Westchester County, NY) and 1820 (in Ohio) and is convinced
      that Silas had several "unknown" children, most of whom settled
      in the states, He is not necessarily convinced that Silas had
      all four of the sons attributed to him. For example, he
      believes that Silas had a son named Stephen who ultimately
      settled in Allegany County, NY, and one or two daughters who
      married in Ohio. As it so happens, John and Edward are the two
      "known" sons that Steve has doubts about
