    • In a survey of lands of Lake Mahopac, made Oct 17,1771, Peter
      Mabie's house is mentioned. He owned a tract of 105 acres
      which began on the lake shore at a point nearly west from the
      Methodist Church, and ran east to the brook which is the outlet
      of the Mud Pond, then down the same from some distance, and
      then extended east to the original east line of Lot 5 of
      Philipse Patent, then south along this line six chains, and
      then westerly to the lake. It included nearly all the shore of
      the lake between the Methodist Church and a point a short
      distance south of the Carpenter House. He also owned Peter or
      Mabie Island situated in the lake consisting of 6 acres.

    • 10 Apr 1784 Fredrickborough Precinct, Dutchess County, New York
      Abraham Maebie On 4/10/1784, Abraham Mabee and Phebee Mabee,
      his wife, of Fredrickborough Precinct Dutchess County, sold a
      tract of land containing 187 acres to John Mabee for 5
      shillings. This tract was bounded on the North and East by the
      lands of Peter Mabee (Abraham's son). The price of 5 shillings
      is very low for this amount of acreage and clearly is in the
      form a bequeath.

    • 28 Sep 1786 Fredrickburg, Dutchess County, New York Peter Mabie

      land to Benajah Beardsley for 500 Pounds. One tract of 68 acres
      was identified as "the farm on which Daniel Mabee now lives",
      referring to the son of Peter and Susanna. The second tract of
      8 acres in part adjoined the farm of John Mabee (Peter's
      brother. This appears to be part of an exchange of land between
      Peter and Benajah. In two others deeds with the same date,
      Benajah Beardsley and his wife Rebecca sold two tracts of land
      containing some 115 acres to Peter Mabee for a total of 600
      Pounds. One of these tracts was bounded in part by lands
      already owned by Peter, and the other was bounded in part by
      lands of Abraham Mabee.

    • Peter Mabie left a will 03 Nov 1808 Carmel, Dutchess (later
      Putnam) County, New York. "Excerpts - Will of Peter Mabie: I,
      Peter Mabie of the town of Carmel, in the CO of Dutchess, New
      Yoek give and bequeath to my sons Daniel Mabie and Jeremiah
      Mabie and my daughter Tamer Wright the sum of five pounds, I
      then give to my grandson Lebbins Mabie, 100 pounds if he shall
      continue on with his Uncle Levi Mabie until he shall become of
      age, if not it shall go to his Uncle Levi to be paid to him
      Lebbins at 21. I devise that Susannah my daughter shallhave
      decent support out of the profits of the farm so long as she
      continue single and should she marry, she is to receive 100
      pounds. If Susannah shall become dissatisfied at home in living
      on with Levi or Sarah his wife, she may do what is necessary to
      move elsewhere and Levi is to go her surity paying her board.
      Should Levi refuse, then it is my wish that the Executors shall
      sell off cattle enough or land to discharge the debt. My son
      Elias is to receive 90 pounds. I give to my beloved wife
      Susannah all the household furniture, the use and profits of
      the farm as she shall require, if she become dissatisfied in
      living with my son Levi then she may change her residence with
      any of the other children and Levi shall be responsible for
      this debt. I give to my son Levi the balance of my real and
      personal estate. I constitute my son Jeremiah and my friend
      Benjamin Townsend Executors of my last will and
      testiment.

      Will of Peter Mabie, of Carmel, Putnam County (Dutchess when
      the will was written), dated 11/3/1808, proved 12/29/1817,
      mentions wife Susannah, sons Daniel, Jeremiah, Levi and Elias,
      daughters Tamer Wright and Susannah (unmarried). Also mentions,
      at fair length, grandson Lebbius Mabie (only grandchild
      mentioned). Steve Mabie writes, "My impression from reading
      this will is that Lebbius was an orphan. There is no mention of
      his parents, only a reference to "his uncle, Levi Mabie".
      Lebbius was definitely under 21 at the time this will was
      written. Note that in The History of Putnam County
      (Pelletreau), Lebeus is listed as a son of Peter. This is not
      correct, based on Peter's will.""

    "The greater part of the records of Gilead Presbyterian Church 

    • Carmel have been destroyed. The church services were suspended
      during the Revolution and not resumed until 1792. All the
      records of the baptisms of the children of Peter Mabie have
      perished. Fortunately the Mabie descendants in Patterson,
      Putnam County, NY have preserved family Bibles and the history
      of the later generations may be accurately written. W.S.
      Pelletreau's history of Putnam County furnishes some account of
      the members of the family, as a__ of the Mabies who settled at
      Lake Mahopac, p. 673 of his history are the names of the sons
      of Pieter Mabie. This list has been verified by family records
      received by the writer."
