I have an Abraham Mabie b Haarlem, NY, 8 Nov 1705 Baptism 18 Nov 1705 d in Frederickstown, Putnam Co, NY (no death date) This Abraham was the brother of my Catherine Mabie If he was yours he would have been in his 90s when he died. However yours might be his son.
Their parents were Casparus Pieterszen Mabie (1660-1720) and Lysbeth Harmense Schuerman/Schureman (1663-1710)
If you have an Abraham Mabie whose parents were not married he would have been Christened/Baptised under his mother's surname and listed as "bastard" or if his father's name is noted then he was listed as "natural" I have seen many like that in the early records.
The "Mabie" may have come from his mother. However when she got married he was probably given the stepfather's surname. He may have been Abraham Mabie SMITH. Have you checked out the Mabie daughters ?
The daughters of Casparus Pieterszen Mabie and Lysbeth Harmense Schuerman/Schureman: Christina (b 1692)married a Zabriskie, Eva Affie (b 1693) Sophie Feytje (b 1697) married a Conklin,
The sons were Pieter Casparszen (b 1689) Frederick (1695) Jeremais (1699-1789) Simon (1701) Abraham (1705) John Johannes (1708) Casparus (1710)
Any of them could have been the parent or even the grandparent of a man who died after 1798
There were many Mabie/Mabee/Maby family members even then. The original Mabille was a French Huguenot. You could check the Baptismal records of the French Church in New York City and also the one in New Rochelle, NY.
Mabille is listed among the 151 family names on the monument to the French Huguenots who founded New Rochelle. Its in Hudson Park.
Yes Lt James Secord (b New Rochelle NY 24 April 1732 d Niagara, ON, Canada 13 July 1784) was married to Madelaine Badeau. He was a Loyalist and fought with Butler's Rangers. I have a certificate from the UELAC on him. Their son, Stephen Secord was a Sgt with Butler's Rangers also.
James was the son of Daniel Secord (1698-1765) and Catherine Mabie (1703-) His g grandfather was Ambroise Sicard (1631-1712) a French Huguenot who came to the US about 1680
James and his brothers John and Peter had gone to the Susquehanna River Valley in Pennsylvania in 1773 with their wives and children and had houses and farms there when they were burnt out by the Patriots about 1776. The brothers and their older sons all became loyalists and the wives and children fled north to Canada.
There is an adventurous true story of how Madelaine Badeau Secord fled to Canada. She and 4 other women and 31 children travelled mostly on foot and arrived there in Nov 1776. The other women were Bowman (Bauman) Buck, Nelles, Young. All of the husbands were Loyalists, away fighting or POWs.
I'll look and see what other Abrahams I can come up with.
