    • 12 Jan 1892 New York City, New York PFP obituary read: John
      Mabie, one of the pioneer gold pen and pencil makers of this
      country and founder of the firm of Mabie, Todd & Bard, 198
      Broadway, died on Saturday of the grip in his country home at
      Fairview, N.J.
      Mr. Mabie was seventy-three years old, and was born in this
      city. He learned the trade of a gold pen and pencil maker with
      Addison, Wilmarth & Co., in Spring Street. Subsequently he
      became foreman for and then a partner of John A. Rauch, in the
      same business, in Cortlandt Street. In 1853 he established the
      firm of Mabie, Knapp & McGovern, the other partners being John
      H. Knapp and John McGovern. After several years, Mr. Knapp
      withdrew. The company then became Mabie, Smith & Co. by the
      admission of William H. Smith and Edward Todd. Then George W.
      Todd joined the firm and its name was changed to Mabie, Todd &
      Co. in 1857.
      Mr. Mabie withdrew from active business seventeen years ago,
      but retained his interest in the name of his two sons, who
      represented him. Recently the firm became Mabie, Todd & Bard.
      Mr. Mabie lived in Brooklyn, Eastern District, a long time, but
      moved to Fairview, then called English Neighborhood, by order
      of his physician, thirty years ago. He traveled extensively in
      Europe and elsewhere. He leaves a large estate.
      Mr. Mabie was twice married. His second wife survives, and
      there are four living children by the first wife. The funeral
      service will be held at the Reformed Church, Ridgefield, N.J.,
      today, at 2:30 o'clock P.M.
