      Maybee, Michigan History
      The exact date is not known, but at least by 1850, the village
      of Maybee was a settlement in the township of Exeter. At that
      time, the Maybee settlement as it was called had one saw mill
      and one general store. Maybee was named after a gentlemen known
      as Abram Maybee. He was born in Medina, Ohio on June 6, 1835.
      His parents were Solomom Maybee and Charlotte (Doolittle)
      Maybee.
      According to documentation the young boy known as Abram, came
      to Michigan with his parents either in 1842 or 1852, written
      documents have not agreed on the exact date.
      Abram received 60 acres of his father's land "situated in
      Exeter" willed to him from his father. His father "Solomom died
      March 26, 1860". This land was later platted for the village of
      Maybee.
      At the age of 30, Abram Maybee married Mary C. Moses on
      December 29, 1864. There were four children born to them. Three
      girls and a son. They also adopted another son.
      At the age of thirty-nine years Abram Maybee and Joseph Klotz
      decided in 1873 to have the lands that they owned surveyed for
      a village. The Canada Southern Railway at this time was also
      being built through Maybee.
      Abram and Joseph soon dealt in the business of selling village
      lots. They also owned a saw mill together according to the 1876
      Atlas of Monroe County.
      On January 6th and 7th, 1873, Delos F Wilcox surveyed the lands
      belonging to these two men. The land platted is part of Private
      Claims 352,495 and 274.
      After this was done, Abram Maybee and Joseph Kloz, both dealt
      in the business of selling village lots. According to the 1876
      Atlas of Monroe County, Abram and Joseph also owned a sawmill
      together.
      According to the death notice of Abram, it was read that he
      built all of the first houses and a hotel.
      In 1890 Abram Maybee retired, he was 56 years old. On Wednesday
      the 18th of May 1892 he died.
      There were four children born to Abram and his wife. Adella,
      Elizabeth, George and Marilla. Abram Maybee and his wife also
      raised an adopted son named Seward.
