    • The Court Martial of Simon Mabee was conducted on 4/11/1777
      The prisoner was charged with "being Employed by the Enemy as a
      Spy & for Enlisting men into their Service". The prisoner had
      been captured on 4/1/1777 at the house of John Hunt "near the
      White Plains", and two documents were also found at the house.
      One document, dated 3/29/1777, signed by D. Mathews, Mayor of
      the City of New York, certified that Simon Mabie "of the
      Malitia of the City of New York" had taken an oath "to bear
      Faith & true allegiance to his Majesty King George the third".
      The second document, dated 3/30/1777, signed by Samuel Holland,
      authorized Simon Mabee "to engage men" for service in the Corps
      of Guides and Axmen under the command of Major Holland. The
      prisoner was found guilty and sentenced to be hanged. Of added
      interest is the fact that, testifying on behalf of the prisoner
      was a Mary Putnam, who said that she was the sister of the
      prisoner and that she had a nephew Simon Mabee. She also
      stated that the prisoner had no wife or family. Also mentioned

      father's farm was near Croton Bridge.
