Baptism Name His baptism name was Jacobus.4 
Baptism*30 May 1731 Cobus Maybee was baptized on 30 May 1731 at First Reformed Dutch Church, Schenectady, Albany County, New York; Witnesses: Jacobus Peek Sen. en Elisabeth Peek E: L: (his great grand parents.)2,4 
Milit-Beg*24 June 1755 24 June 1755 Cobus Maybee and Jan Pieter Mabie were enrolled in Captain William McGinnes' Company of the Albany County Militia at Schenectady, Albany County, New York.5 
MilServicefrom 1 August 1755 to 31 August 1755 From 1 August 1755 to 31 August 1755 Schenectady, Albany County, New York, Jacobus Maybee was paid one shilling, thrupence for his month's service as a private soldier in the Albany County Militia.5 
Residence*From before 1761 until 1767 Cobus Maybee and Aagje Claase (?) lived From before 1761 until 1767 at Indian Flats, Canajoharie Castle, Albany County, New York, with Joseph Mabie; During this period Sir William Johnson was at odds with Eghye, and was trying to take her land. He was successful in 1767 when he received the governor's permission to evict her.6 
Occupation*17 February 1761 Cobus Maybee was a selling liquor on 17 February 1761 at the Flatts of Canajoharie, New York.7 
Anecdote*from 17 February 1761 to 5 April 1767 At the end of an entry in the Journal of Indian Affairs, Sir William Johnson wrote on 17 February 1761 "-- an old Mulatto Woman named Eve Pickerd waited on Sir William with a Deed of gift (for a parcel of low, and woodland containing about 1100 acres) which she had which was dated last September [1760], and which Sir William discovered had been executed only two days ago, by three Indians whom she called to her house, & whom she, and her Grandson (who sells liquor) had made drunk, & then prevailed on them to sign the Deed, without having a License from the Governour, or President, with which unjust proceed proceedings Sir William made some of the Chiefs of that Castle acquainted, to whom the Land belonged, which threw them into a violent passion, and made them Exclaim against the deceitfulness, and unbrotherlike behaviour of the white people towards them, who they sayed, dryly took all advantages of their ignorance, and seemed to aim at their entire extirpation -- which they added, was a most cruel, and unchristianlike return for their adherence to the English, and charitable conduct towards their Neighbours, when they were unable to assist themselves"
     So began the Indian agent, Sir William's battle to evict Eve Pickert her grandchildren, Jacob and Joseph Maybee, and their families from the land they worked and claimed as their own. Although Sir William claimed to his superiors that there were no legal deeds, he wrote to John Kempe on 7 September 1765 and desired an opinion on the matter saying "a certain Cobus Maybe lived for many years in their [Conajoharee Indians] flat Land, by virtue only of an Indian Deed. Some time ago as these Indians begin to plant more than formerly they warned him to remove which he refused to do..."
     Sir William wrote many letters to his superiors asking permission to evict the family, but was not successful. In a letter to Lieutenant Governor Cadwaller Colden on 11 December 1764 he says "I am heartily sorry to find that any difficulty Should arise with regard to Maybes being removed. A Man who lives on the Indian planting lands without a Just claim & Consequently in contempt of his Majestys late Proclamation [of 7 October 1763]. The Indians are constantly with me about it, and imagine after hearing what was said by His Majestys Proclamation that we trifle with them."
     By January 1765, Sir William wrote Colden "P.S. Nonwithstanding Maybe was ordered by you & ye Council to lay before me his Affair, He has not done it & the Indians continue vastly uneasy"
     After Colden had left office, Sir William appears to finally be victorious in his campaign. On 14 Mar 1767 he wrote in the Journal of Indian Affairs, "John Butler & Hendrick Fry Esq. [ two Justices of the Peace] arrived here and reported to Sir Wm that they had last Thursday [April 5th] warned Jacobus Maybee and his grandmother Eve Pickard to remove in 18 days time off the Indian lands agreeable to the Governour's Orders, and that they the said Maybee and Eve Pickard promised to comply with said Order, on which the Indians made a long Speech to the Justices returning the Govt., Sir Wm and them many thanks for the Justice done to them in this affair.8,9 
Marriage*5 December 1761 He married Christina Van de Eewaerde on 5 December 1761 at Stone Arabia, Albany County, New York.

MilService*between 24 July 1763 and 28 July 1763  Between 24 July 1763 and 28 July 1763 Cobus Maybee and Joseph Mabie served with Bartholomew Mabie, Bartholomew Pickert and Gerrit Van Sleuck, as members of Captain Jacob Klock's Company of Tryon County Militia in the Indian alarm at Burnelsfield - German Flatts, Albany County, New York.12,13 
Memo*1766 Cobus Maybee paid a tax of £4 in 1766 at Canajoharie, Albany County, New York.14 
(Witness) Baptism2 January 1787 He was witnesses to the baptism of Christina Hauss on 2 January 1787 at Reformed Dutch Church, German Flatts, Montgomery County, New York; Witnesses: Cobus Mabee and Christina.15 
Memo1788 Cobus Maybee was included on the tax list in 1788 at Canajoharie Town, Montgomery County, New York.16 
(Witness) Immigration1791 He immigrated with Caleb Hopkins in 1791 at Ontario County, New York.In 1791 he (Caleb) started from Pittsford, Rutland county, Vermont, for western New York in company with General Jonathan Fassett, and on reaching the Mohawk valley they were joined by Jacobus Mabee. They settled in the wilderness of what was Ontario county. General Fassett caused a plot to be surveyed for a village nearly opposite Tryonstown on Irondequoit creek but the village never materialized and, becoming disappointed and discouraged, he returned to Vermont, leaving Colonel Hopkins in charge of his extensive land purchase.17 
Death*between 1791 and 1793 Cobus Maybee died between 1791 and 1793 at Ontario County, New York.2,18 
Anecdote*24 October 1793 Bond on estate of James Maybee (?Jacob) of Ontario Co., NY made by Christian Maybee on 24 October 1793 [OntCW Unrec Adm].19 
(Witness) oObit He was mentioned in the obituary of Caleb Hopkins; Colonel Caleb Hopkins, whose life history forms an integral factor in the annals of Monroe county, was connected with many events which shaped the policy and molded the destiny of this part of the state. He was born in 1770 and died January 14, 1818, at the age of forty-seven years, three years before the county of Monroe was organized. He was a son of James Hopkins and a grandson of Ebenezer Hopkins who removed from Connecticut to Pittsford, Vermont. Both the father and grandfather were farmers. James Hopkins had two sons, Caleb and James, and two daughters: Rhoda, the wife of Elisha Hopkins, Jr., and Susanna, the wife of Elijah Kirkham.
Colonel Hopkins of this review was married, probably in 1795, to Dorothy Mabee, a daughter of Jacobus Mabee, who came to western New York about 1791. Her death occurred August 20, 1847, when she had reached the advanced age of seventy-nine years. Both she and her husband lie buried in the cemetery a mile south of the village of Pittsford and beside them are the remains of three children: Clarissa, James and Marvin.
The life history of Colonel Hopkins, covering a period of forty-seven years, was in many respects a notable one. In 1791 he started from Pittsford, Rutland county, Vermont, for western New York in company with General Jonathan Fassett, and on reaching the Mohawk valley they were joined by Jacobus Mabee. They settled in the wilderness of what was Ontario county. General Fassett caused a plot to be surveyed for a village nearly opposite Tryonstown on Irondequoit creek but the village never materialized and, becoming disappointed and discouraged, he returned to Vermont, leaving Colonel Hopkins in charge of his extensive land purchase.17 
BaptismLDS*10 September 2000 Cobus Maybee was baptized (by proxy) on 10 September 2000.

[ two Justices of the Peace] arrived here and reported to Sir Wm that they had last Thursday [April 5th] warned Jacobus Maybee and his grandmother Eve Pickard to remove in 18 days time off the Indian lands agreeable to the Governour's Orders, and that they the said Maybee and Eve Pickard promised to comply with said Order, on which the Indians made a long Speech to the Justices returning the Govt., Sir Wm and them many thanks for the Justice done to them in this affair.14,15

Know all men that we the native Indians of Onida nominated Sachems, Chiefs & Warriors, do elect, empower Jacob Reed to act & transact a business of importance with Joseph Mabee & Jacob Schuyler of the State of New York & County of Herkimer. I, therefore Jacob Reed do grant the farm let unto Joseph Mabee & Jacob Schuyler, a certain tract or parcel of land which we the said Natives are unable to improve, lying on our reserve commonly call The Chedenango (alias Chittelingo) above the main bridge, both sides of the creek. Therefore they the said Native Indians do Covenant & agree with Joseph Mabee & Jacob Schuyler, their heirs & assigns, that the said Joseph & Jacob shall have hold, occupy & enjoy the said tract or parcel of land one year free from the time the said Joseph & Jacob their heirs & assigns shall improve on the same: and the second year they the said Joseph & Jacob their heirs or assigns shall pay forty pounds or one hundred dollars until the full end & term of three years: to have & to hold the said parcel of land before mentioned, free, clear, peaceable & unmolested during the term of years.

I do further certify that myself & the Chiefs of our tribe & our surveyor attended at Canasaroga to measure the said lands as in said lease mentioned That the said mentioned persons were actually improving the said lands & the said parties desired us to put off the measurement of said lands, being one hundred acres to each, until a final settlement with our tribe & the State of New York should take place; and no other person has any rights from us to claim by lease or improvement any lands lying between Chedenanka & the Military line.
December 7, 1795     By order of the Sachems & Warriors of our tribe. (signed) Jacob Reed

Herkimer County
Peter Marsh & Gerrit Van Slyke (now resident on Onida Reservation) being duly sworn, depose & say that they were present & saw Jacob Reed subscribe the last mentioned Certificate on the 7th day of December instant, & at the same time heard the said Jacob Reed acknowledge that he had on behalf of the Onida Nation given & entered into the foregoing agreement or lease to & with the above named Joseph Mabee & Jacob Schuyler and the deponents further say that the said agreement as aforesaid was made by the consent & approbation of the Onida Nation of Indians, as they have often heard sundry of the same Nation confess & acknowledge; particularly the said Peter Marsh says that early in the month of April last past, Schenando, Ludwick, Anthony, Jacob Dackstedder, John Denny & some others of the Chiefs of the said Nation, together with a surveyor called upon the persons in the said lease or agreement mentioned at their houses & offered & proposed to survey off the said tract to the said persons, but the survey was postponed for the reasons in the foregoing certificate of John Reed mentioned. These Deponents further say that the above named Joseph Mabee was actually resident on the said tract of land (between the Chittelingo & the Military Tract of lands) on the first of July 1794 & has occupied & improved thereon to this time by the consent of the said Onida Nation. And these Deponents further say that the said Jacob Schuyler, David Schuyler Jun. & the said Peter & Gerrit occupied & improved the said described piece of land before & on the first day of January last past, & by the consent & approbation of the Onida Nation and also that they are all of full age & have families except the said David Schuyler Jun. But whether the dwelling houses of the said persons (except the said Joseph Mabee) are situated on the tract lately purchased of the Onida Nation, these Deponents are ignorant, the line between the said tract & Hardenburgh's location not being ascertained, & the houses standing near the same. Conrad Klock, (resident on the Onida Reservation) being duly sworn, says that the above named persons have occupied & improved the tract of land above described for more than one year last past by the consent & approbation of the Onida Nation, as he verily believes.

Also a memorandum in the following words, annex'd to the above.
By order of the Sachems, Chiefs & Warriors of the Onida Nation of Indians I hereby certify that Joseph Mabee & Jacob Schuyler leased of the Onidas all the lands mentioned in the within lease for themselves & the following mentioned persons /viz./ Peter Marsh, Gerrit Van Slyck, David Schuyler Jun., Hezekiah Olcott & Jacob Rice & not inserting the five last mentioned persons in this lease is by reason. That the said Joseph Mabee & Jacob Schuyler became sureties for said rent within mentioned lease. And said lease is to comprehend the Chedenanka & Tuscarora lands. I do further certify that myself & the Chiefs of our tribe & our surveyor attended at Canasaroga to measure the said lands as in said lease mentioned That the said mentioned persons were actually improving the said lands & the said parties desired us to put off the measurement of said lands, being one hundred acres to each, until a final settlement with our tribe & the State of New York should take place; and no other person has any rights from us to claim by lease or improvement any lands lying between Chedenanka & the Military line.
December 7, 1795     By order of the Sachems & Warriors of our tribe. (signed) Jacob Reed

Herkimer County
Peter Marsh & Gerrit Van Slyke (now resident on Onida Reservation) being duly sworn, depose & say that they were present & saw Jacob Reed subscribe the last mentioned Certificate on the 7th day of December instant, & at the same time heard the said Jacob Reed acknowledge that he had on behalf of the Onida Nation given & entered into the foregoing agreement or lease to & with the above named Joseph Mabee & Jacob Schuyler and the deponents further say that the said agreement as aforesaid was made by the consent & approbation of the Onida Nation of Indians, as they have often heard sundry of the same Nation confess & acknowledge; particularly the said Peter Marsh says that early in the month of April last past, Schenando, Ludwick, Anthony, Jacob Dackstedder, John Denny & some others of the Chiefs of the said Nation, together with a surveyor called upon the persons in the said lease or agreement mentioned at their houses & offered & proposed to survey off the said tract to the said persons, but the survey was postponed for the reasons in the foregoing certificate of John Reed mentioned. These Deponents further say that the above named Joseph Mabee was actually resident on the said tract of land (between the Chittelingo & the Military Tract of lands) on the first of July 1794 & has occupied & improved thereon to this time by the consent of the said Onida Nation. And these Deponents further say that the said Jacob Schuyler, David Schuyler Jun. & the said Peter & Gerrit occupied & improved the said described piece of land before & on the first day of January last past, & by the consent & approbation of the Onida Nation and also that they are all of full age & have families except the said David Schuyler Jun. But whether the dwelling houses of the said persons (except the said Joseph Mabee) are situated on the tract lately purchased of the Onida Nation, these Deponents are ignorant, the line between the said tract & Hardenburgh's location not being ascertained, & the houses standing near the same. Conrad Klock, (resident on the Onida Reservation) being duly sworn, says that the above named persons have occupied & improved the tract of land above described for more than one year last past by the consent & approbation of the Onida Nation, as he verily believes.

Name Variation  Dorothea Mabee was also known as Dorothea Maybee. 
Married Name Her married name was Hopkins. 
Birth*6 April 1768 She was born on 6 April 1768 at Albany (later Montgomery) County, New York.2 
Marriage*1796 She married Caleb Hopkins in 1796 at Penfield, Monroe County, New York.3 
Census*1820 Dorothea Mabee appeared on the census of 1820 at Pittsford Township, Ontario County, New York.
Doratha Hopkins, One man and two women over 45, one man 16-26, and one girl 10-16.4 
(Witness) oObit She was mentioned in the obituary of Caleb Hopkins; Colonel Caleb Hopkins, whose life history forms an integral factor in the annals of Monroe county, was connected with many events which shaped the policy and molded the destiny of this part of the state. He was born in 1770 and died January 14, 1818, at the age of forty-seven years, three years before the county of Monroe was organized. He was a son of James Hopkins and a grandson of Ebenezer Hopkins who removed from Connecticut to Pittsford, Vermont. Both the father and grandfather were farmers. James Hopkins had two sons, Caleb and James, and two daughters: Rhoda, the wife of Elisha Hopkins, Jr., and Susanna, the wife of Elijah Kirkham.
Colonel Hopkins of this review was married, probably in 1795, to Dorothy Mabee, a daughter of Jacobus Mabee, who came to western New York about 1791. Her death occurred August 20, 1847, when she had reached the advanced age of seventy-nine years. Both she and her husband lie buried in the cemetery a mile south of the village of Pittsford and beside them are the remains of three children: Clarissa, James and Marvin.
The life history of Colonel Hopkins, covering a period of forty-seven years, was in many respects a notable one. In 1791 he started from Pittsford, Rutland county, Vermont, for western New York in company with General Jonathan Fassett, and on reaching the Mohawk valley they were joined by Jacobus Mabee. They settled in the wilderness of what was Ontario county. General Fassett caused a plot to be surveyed for a village nearly opposite Tryonstown on Irondequoit creek but the village never materialized and, becoming disappointed and discouraged, he returned to Vermont, leaving Colonel Hopkins in charge of his extensive land purchase.5 
Death*20 August 1847 Dorothea Mabee died on 20 August 1847 at age 79.3 
Burial* She and Caleb Hopkins were buried at Pioneer Burying Ground, Pittsfield, New York.3 
BaptismLDS*8 January 2001 Dorothea Mabee was baptized (by proxy) on 8 January 2001.

Name Variation  Sylvanus Mabee was also known as Sufrenus.2 
Name Variation  Sylvanus Mabee was also known as Severienus.1 
Birth*18 September 1774 He was born on 18 September 1774 at Tryon County, New York.1 
Anecdote*1793 A letter addressed to Souverenus Mabee was left at the Bennington, VT, post office in 1793.3 
Anecdote21 March 1797 Undated Upper Canada Land Petition of Sufrenus Mabee received at the Executive Council Office on 21 Mar 1797
"Humbly Sheweth That your petitioner came into this Province in the year 1793 and has never drawn any lands—That your Petitioner is nephew to Lewis Mabee of Bertie who served as a Serjt in Col Butlers Rangers during the American war.
That your petitioner has taken the usual Oaths Subscribed the declaration, that he professes the Christian religion and obedience to the Laws – prays your Honor would grant him such a proportion of Lands as to your Honor may seem meet
and your petitioner as in duty bound will ever pray—[Signed] Sufrenus Mabee"
Received at the Executive Council Office on 21 Mar 1797 and read in Council the same day. Ordered 200 acres if not granted before.2 
Anecdote* Suffernus was a pioneer settler at Buffalo and later at the mouth of the Cattaraugus creek.4 
Census*1800 Sylvanus Mabee appeared on the census of 1800 at Northampton, Ontario County, New York.
Sylvanus Mabee, One male 16-26.5 
Occupation*12 August 1801 He was a Commissioned as a Justice of The Peace on 12 August 1801 at Ontario County, New York.6 
Occupation3 July 1804 He was a again commissioned as a Justice of The Peace on 3 July 1804 at Ontario County, New York.6 
Anecdote1807 The Code of Honor was frequently resorted to in pioneer days, as we know from the tragic death of Alexander Hamilton at the hands of ill-fated Aaron Burr and even later Burr fought a duel in New Jersey, arising from a quarrel, due to Burr's acquisition of certain lands from the Holland Land Company, bordering on Lake Ontario.
But, the first military quarrel and challenge under the code of honor, likewise the first court martial under military law occurred in Buffalo in 1807 and although it had its comedy features, it was by no means a burlesque for the unhappy principal in the affair, Major Sylvanus Maybee.
Sylvanus Maybee was a pioneer merchant here and bought the lot at the northeast corner of Main and Seneca streets from the Holland Company, the lot on which the Marine Trust's eighteen story home office now stands.
In 1807 all of the territory now embraced in Erie and Niagara counties was embraced in Genesee county and the state government had made a big effort to form a militia regiment in Genesee County, with Asa Ransom, the pioneer silversmith here, as lieutenant colonel commanding; Timothy S. Hopkins and Sylvanus Maybee as majors and William Warren, one of the several captains of companies.
An officer training' had been ordered held in Buffalo (then the Village of New Amsterdam if you please). Maybee had been promoted from captain of a Buffalo Company, to major and he imagined that it was his duty, and privilege, to nominate his own successor as a captain. Colonel Ransom claimed the prerogative and a serious clash ensued, after Maybee had used harsh words to his superior officer, followed by a challenge from Maybee to Ransom, inviting him to settle 'on the field of honor'. This, of course, was not according to the peculiar code.
Major Maybee did not get his chance to shoot at Colonel Ransom, for sending a challenge to his superior officer constituted a serious infraction of military law and Maybee was immediately ordered under arrest; a court martial was ordered from military headquarters at Albany; Maybee was duly tried, found guilty; sentenced to be cashiered and thus Maybee dropped out of the militia. The discomfited Major felt so deeply humiliated by his dismissal, that he immediately sold out his interests here, ceased paying for his corner lot and disappeared from this region. He did not renew his challenge and no duel was fought.7 
Anecdote After Sylvanus was cashiered and drummed out to the Militia, he went to Cattaraugus, where he had set up another Indian trading post.8 
Census1810 Sylvanus Mabee appeared on the census of 1810 at Pomfret, Niagara County, New York.
Sylvanus Mabee, one man 26-45, one woman over 45, two males 16-26, and one female 10-16.9 
BaptismLDS*29 December 2001 He was baptized (by proxy) on 29 December 2001.

oObit*  The obituary of John Mabee read: At Royalton on the 1st inst, Col. John Mabee aged 57 years
The cause of his death was sad as it was unexpected. He was crossing the mill-dam as was his daily custom and by slipping or some other accident he was precipitated over the dam a distance feet, the back part of the head striking upon a sharp projecting rock which caused immediate death. The cries of a small boy, and the howling of a favorite dog who passed from the dam to his master below, indicating the peculiar characteristics of that affectionate animal, first attracrwd the attention of the men about the mill, but their assistance was only to witness his last expiring breath.
Col. Mabee's parents were from Holland and settled near Little Falls in this state where the subject of this notice was born in 1781. The subsequently moved to Penfield where the father purchased about 1700 acres of land, but soon after died. Desputes and litigation deprived the family of all their prospective wealth and when 18 years old, Col. Mabee commenced the world for himself at Pittsford as a common laborer where he continued to 1812 when he moved to this town and purchased A few acres of land containing a Grist and Saw Mill and by persevering industry and integrity he acquired a large landed estate and owned several mills. Col. Mabee was one of the oldest residents in this town and few survive him as contemporaneous Pioneers of Holland Purchase. From a comparitive wilderness he lived to see a dens population around him, enjoying the comforts and happiness incident to a rural district, and no one did more, or more willing contributed to those elements of prosperity which are the enviable and striking characteristics of Western New York
His patriotic devotion to his country and its institutions, his honesty and fair dealing with his fellow man were his prominent characteristics, and his death occasions irreparable loss to his family, his neighbors , and to an extensive circle of friends. His fureral was attended by a large concourse of relatives and friends who evinced by their sympathetic tears, the the deceased was the recipient of all ennobling attributes of humanity, and it needs not the artistic chisel to express upon inanimate marble that Col. Mabee was indeed an "honest man" the noblest work of God.15 
Burial He was buried at Mabee Cemetery, Gasport, Niagara County, New York. Inscription "Where this cold silent marble weeps; A Husband and father sleeps."16

Anecdote Charles, in hope of visiting his cousins, the Rulisons before returning to Parish, was on a raft trip, which was difficult. When he reached St. Joseph, Missouri he was very ill and had to enter the St. Joseph's hospital operated by Dr. Thomas Mount. There he had a nurse, Mary Jane Mount (daughter of the doctor) and the two young people fell in love. We do not know how long Charles was in the hospital, but on June 26, 1866 they were married at St. Joseph against the violent objection of the Mount family. She was disowned by the family for marrying a Damn Yankee and she never saw them again. On the Kansas side of the river was an almost continuous line of Indian tribes. the couple eventually reached Wyandot, Kansas, home of the Wyandot Indians, a village that was later to become Kansas City, Kansas. There their first child, Clara Alma was born March 16, 1868.
The family then traveled southwesterly to central Kansas where they hoped to farm and to obtain work as a builder. They found a place called Agnes City near Emporia and four more children were born: Charles E., George, Jan, Alice Fern and Janet Dove.
One interesting episode on their travels was when the notorious female bandit Calamity Jane rode into camp one evening and wanted to spend the night. She was placed under heavy guard and the next morning a band of horsemen took her back along the trail for 50 miles and sent her along her way with a dire warning to keep going.8
