(Mentioned) oObit2 October 1890 William Oscar Mabee was mentioned in the obituary of of John P Mabee on 2 October 1890 at Warwick, Orange County, New York; Sudden Death of John Mabee, Jr
John, or "Pud" Mabee, as he had been more familiarly known from his childhood, died of apoplexy at the home of his parents, in this village, at about 3:30 o'clock6 on Thursday afternoon last, aged 46 years and 10 months. He had but the evening previous returned home from a week's visit among acquaintances in Paterson and New York, and retired shortly after. Thursday morning he arose at an early hour and remained about the village until about 7 o'clock, then wended his way home and went to his room and to bed. It was known that he was feeling unwell and weary and he was not disturbed, until some hours after, when he was found to be in a comatose state. When his Condition was discovered speedy efforts were made for his relief, but without avail, and at the hour named life was extinct.
He was born in this village and enjoyed for a few years of his youth the educational advantages offered by our village school. At suitable age he was apprenticed to the tinsmith's trade which he followed as a journeyman for a brief period, and then abandoned for railroading, serving both upon the Erie and the Warwick Valley roads, and in this occupation he became very proficient. After a term of years at this he gave it np and had for a number of years been engaged again mainly as a tinsmith.
He was a most genial, companionable and quick witted young man, and when at his best was the life and soul of a company. Ever quick at repartee and with an inexhaustible fund of anecdotes he had hosts of friends. He was a staunch member of the Republican party and ever alert to defend its principles when they were assailed. He was unmarried, and is survived by his aged parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Mabee. His brothers, Conductor T. G. Mabee, Will O. Mabee and James D., formerly foreman of the Advertiser office, and five sisters survive him.
The funeral services, which were held at the home of the deceased on Sunday afternoon, were conducted by the Rev. Arthur Thompson of the M. E. Church this .village, and were largely attended. The remains were interred in the Warwick.12 
(Mentioned) oObit25 December 1890 William Oscar Mabee was mentioned in the obituary of of John Mabee Jr on 25 December 1890 at Warwick, Orange County, New York; Another resident octogenarian has gone with the shades of the departing year. Mr. John Mabee, a native and nearly life-long resident of this village, departed this life peacefully, though rather unexpectedly sudden, at his home on Hudson st, on Saturday morning, December 20, in his 81st year, he having been born August 6, 1810, and at the homestead where he died. He had all his life enjoyed good health until about a year ago, when in alighting from a wagon at the postoffice, he missed his footing and fell heavily across a wheel, striking his breast and side, and was injured to such an extent thereby that he never fully recovered either his former vigor or from the shock occasioned. These injuries, and the infirmities incident to his advanced years, and the farther fact that since the sudden death, a few months ago, of his son John he had sorely grieved over that affliction, tended no doubt to shorten his span of life, which, but for them, might have been spared to his loving family another decade or more.
Mr. Mabee was, as we have stated, born in this village, and, excepting several of his early years spent in New York oity at his trade of tailoring, and a few months at the same occupation in New Orleans, had always resided here. He was married some 52 years ago in New York city to Miss Elizabeth Bodine, a native of Montgomery, who survives him, with whom and their numerous family of children and grandchildren gathered together beneath the parental roof, they had two simmers ago celebrated in a most joyous manner their golden wedding.
Mr. Mabee followed his trade until about 20 years ago, and then gave it np to engage in the retail grocery business, which latter he conduced for several years, in the meanwhile frequently being elected to the offices respectively of village collector, town poormaster and constable, the latter two of which he held for 18 consecutive years, notwithstanding he was a Republican and this a Democratic town. He was for about 30 years an honored member of Warwick Lodge F. & A. M., and filled the position of Chaplain in that organization for many years. He had also for many years been a worthy member of the M. E. Church here. He was naturally bright, vigorous, and intelligent for a man whose lot it was not to enjoy many educational advantages, but he was a great reader, a student of man and nature, and acquired a most valuable fund of information that many more highly favored ones will never possess. He was open-hearted and handed, and the soul of geniality, and ever had hosts of friends. He had a quick and retentive memory and was considered an encyclopedia of local history and biography, as many can testify.
Of his immediate family there survive him, beside his widow, the following children: Conductor Thomas G., of Suffern, N. Y; William 0.,of Fishkill; James D., of New York city; Hester, wife of W. P. Macornal, of Newburgh, N. Y; Maggie, wife of Ora Simpson, of McAfee, N. J., and Mary, Catherine and Alice at home; also; ten grandchildren. He was much loved, at home.13 
Death*7 July 1898 William Oscar Mabee died on 7 July 1898 at New York City, New York, at age 53.2 
oObit*10 July 1898  On 10 July 1898 at New York City, New York, the obituary of William Oscar Mabee read: Death of William Oscar Mabee in New York City, born 4/2/1845, formerly of Warwick, Orange County, NY. Had resided in the city "about 20 years", employed by the American Mercantile Agency, resided at 298 West 138th Street. Left a widow, one son and two daughters.14 
Burial10 July 1898 He was buried on 10 July 1898 at Warwick Cemetery, Warwick, Orange County, New York.15,16 
oObit  At Warwick, New York, the obituary of William Oscar Mabee read: William Oscar Mabee, the son of the late John Mabee of Warwick, died at his home in New York city, last Thursday night, July 7, aged 53 years.
For a year and a half Mr Mabee has been seriously ill with heart disease and other complications which made it necessary for him to practically abandon active business he maintained his naturally cheerful spirit, however, and on the day he died had felt better than usual. Shortly after retiring for the night, Mrs Mabee awoke to find that her husband had expired without the slightest warning.
Mr Mabee was born in Warwick and resided here until about 25 years ago. His first business venture was the establishment of a grocery store on Railroad avenue, which he afterward sold to R F Vail, and went into business in New York city. Subsequesnly he conducted a gents' furnishing goods store in Newburgh and was appointed by William R Brown as Inspector of Clothing at Sing Sing Prison, a position which he filled with credit to himself and with great satisfaction to the State.
Mr Mabee was afterward connected with the North American Mercantile Agency as soliciting agent for New York city, continuing in this capacity until the time of his death.
While residing in Newburg Mr Mabee married Miss Lillie Belknap, daughter of Mrs John L Belknap, who with three children, survive him. The deceased is also survived by one brother, James D of the Dispatch office, and five sisters – Katurah and Mary of Warwick; Mrs Hester A McCornal of Newburgh; Mrs Magdalene B Simpson of Newton N. J., and Mrs Alice Montross of Warwick.
"Will" as he was familiarly called in town, was a model man in many respects. For modest politeness, kindness, good cheer, strict integrity and unostentatious Christian character it is rare to find his equal. He made friends everywhere and was universally respected and trusted.
Services were conducted at his late residence in New York city on Saturday evening and the remains were brought to Warwick on Sunday, the funeral being held at the M. E. Church in the afternoon by the Rev E H Carr, and were largely attended. Interment in Warwick Cemetery.17

These injuries, and the infirmities incident to his advanced years, and the farther fact that since the sudden death, a few months ago, of his son John he had sorely grieved over that affliction, tended no doubt to shorten his span of life, which, but for them, might have been spared to his loving family another decade or more.
Mr. Mabee was, as we have stated, born in this village, and, excepting several of his early years spent in New York oity at his trade of tailoring, and a few months at the same occupation in New Orleans, had always resided here. He was married some 52 years ago in New York city to Miss Elizabeth Bodine, a native of Montgomery, who survives him, with whom and their numerous family of children and grandchildren gathered together beneath the parental roof, they had two simmers ago celebrated in a most joyous manner their golden wedding.
Mr. Mabee followed his trade until about 20 years ago, and then gave it np to engage in the retail grocery business, which latter he conduced for several years, in the meanwhile frequently being elected to the offices respectively of village collector, town poormaster and constable, the latter two of which he held for 18 consecutive years, notwithstanding he was a Republican and this a Democratic town. He was for about 30 years an honored member of Warwick Lodge F. & A. M., and filled the position of Chaplain in that organization for many years. He had also for many years been a worthy member of the M. E. Church here. He was naturally bright, vigorous, and intelligent for a man whose lot it was not to enjoy many educational advantages, but he was a great reader, a student of man and nature, and acquired a most valuable fund of information that many more highly favored ones will never possess. He was open-hearted and handed, and the soul of geniality, and ever had hosts of friends. He had a quick and retentive memory and was considered an encyclopedia of local history and biography, as many can testify.
Of his immediate family there survive him, beside his widow, the following children: Conductor Thomas G., of Suffern, N. Y; William 0.,of Fishkill; James D., of New York city; Hester, wife of W. P. Macornal, of Newburgh, N. Y; Maggie, wife of Ora Simpson, of McAfee, N. J., and Mary, Catherine and Alice at home; also; ten grandchildren. He was much loved, at home.10

For a year and a half Mr Mabee has been seriously ill with heart disease and other complications which made it necessary for him to practically abandon active business he maintained his naturally cheerful spirit, however, and on the day he died had felt better than usual. Shortly after retiring for the night, Mrs Mabee awoke to find that her husband had expired without the slightest warning.
Mr Mabee was born in Warwick and resided here until about 25 years ago. His first business venture was the establishment of a grocery store on Railroad avenue, which he afterward sold to R F Vail, and went into business in New York city. Subsequesnly he conducted a gents' furnishing goods store in Newburgh and was appointed by William R Brown as Inspector of Clothing at Sing Sing Prison, a position which he filled with credit to himself and with great satisfaction to the State.
Mr Mabee was afterward connected with the North American Mercantile Agency as soliciting agent for New York city, continuing in this capacity until the time of his death.
While residing in Newburg Mr Mabee married Miss Lillie Belknap, daughter of Mrs John L Belknap, who with three children, survive him. The deceased is also survived by one brother, James D of the Dispatch office, and five sisters – Katurah and Mary of Warwick; Mrs Hester A McCornal of Newburgh; Mrs Magdalene B Simpson of Newton N. J., and Mrs Alice Montross of Warwick.
"Will" as he was familiarly called in town, was a model man in many respects. For modest politeness, kindness, good cheer, strict integrity and unostentatious Christian character it is rare to find his equal. He made friends everywhere and was universally respected and trusted.

(Mentioned) oObit14 January 1914 Magdeline Mabee was mentioned in the obituary of of James D Mabee on 14 January 1914 at Warwick, Orange County, New York; JAMES D. MABEE DIES ON WAY HOME MONDAY EVENING
Seized with Heart Failure in Piercing Winds on Orchard St.

As he left the Dispatch office for his home about five o'clock Monday evening, James D. Mabee, foreman of the office remarked: "I hate this cold weather."
Stopping at the news store of Fred V. Wood, near the railroad crossing, for his evening paper, Mr. Mabee met his friend, William Powell, to whom he said: "I wish I were home, away from this terrible wind; I dread that Orchard street stretch."
Passing out, he walked up the first block of the Oakland avenue hill and turned into Orchard street, and here the full force of the fierce west wind struck him. Nearing the end of the block, and not over three-hundred feet from his own snug home around the corner on Welling avenue, Mr. Mabee succumbed to the cruel blast; but he managed to get upon the porch of the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Wherry and to enter the hallway, where he was heard, feebly calling for help. As Mrs. Wherry quickly responded and opened the door to the living room, Mr. Mabee fell unconscious at her feet in the hall. Dr. G.F. Pitts, a near neighbor and Mr. Mabee's family physician, was called and word was sent to Mrs. Mabee, but he did not regain consciousness, expiring just as they arrived.
The news of Mr. Mabee's sudden death shocked the whole village; to his wife and sisters the blow was prostrating. For several years Mr. Mabee and his friends have been aware that his health was precarious, but the excellent care he took of himself seemed to build him up; several winters ago he took a trip to Pine Bluff, N.C., when threatened with heart trouble, and came home much benefited.
During the day, Monday, one of his employers had made the customary inquiry as to how he felt, and the cheery answer was: "I feel just fine; better than for a long while." On account of the bitter wind he remained at the office during the noon hour, eating lunch there, as was his custom in cold weather.
James Durham Mabee was the younger of four sons of the late John Mabee and Elizabeth Bodine. His brothers were Thomas, John, and William.
He was born at the Mabee homestead on Colonial avenue, Dec. 28, 1855, in the same house where his father was born in 1810. With the exception of a few years he spent the whole of his life as a resident of this village and town. After attending school at the little red school-house on Maple avenue, when William H. McElroy was the teacher, and for several years afterwards at the Warwick Institute, he was apprenticed, at the age of 17 to learn the printer's trade in the office of the Warwick Advertiser, then located at the corner of Lake street and Colonial avenue, and conducted by John Servin and Daniel F. Welling. He continued in the employ of the Advertiser, after becoming a full-fledged printer, until about 1888(?), when he went to New York, securing a position as compositor in the office of the New York Times. Returning to Warwick a few years later, he became associated with the Warwick Valley Dispatch, which had been established in 1885, and has been foreman of its composing, job, and press room for over twenty-two years. In this capacity Mr. Mabee had unusual ability; he was the best all-round printer we have ever known; his unflagging energy, (?) and resourcefulness, and his loyalty to his employers will never be forgotten. He was modest and gentle, and trustworthy.
Mr. Mabee was one born to the newspaper trade; he had the keen sense for news, and could put a touch of humor or pathos into a local story that insured its being read with interest and delight. His occasional contributions to the local columns of the Dispatch were sometimes ascribed to "our dreaming reporter." But it was (?n expe?litious) job-printer that Mr. Mabee excelled; he could turn off a mass of work deftly, neatly and quickly, keeping everybody on the floor as busy as himself. He has probably set up and printed more auction posters than any other man of his time in this section.
From early manhood Mr. Mabee has been a prominent member of the Odd Fellows fraternity, having served as Recording Secretary of Wawayanda Lodge No. 31 for about fifteen years, since the time of the late S. T. Lazear. He resigned this post in December, and the brethren of the lodge had raised a little purse to buy some token of esteem, to be placed in his new home. He was also a member of the Tuxedo Tribe of Red Men. He was serving his second term as Treasurer of the Village of Warwick at the time of his death. All his life Mr. Mabee has been an attendant of the Methodist church, and for several years past he has been a member of the Methodist Church of Warwick; and of the Brotherhood connected with it.
January 27, 1878, he married Emma, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Hunter of Greenwood Lake. They have two daughters, Olive Terwillerger, or New York, and Florence, wife of Frank T. Chambers of Middletown; two grandsons, - Elmer Chambers and Willis Terwillerger, - and five sisters survive him: Katurah Winans, and Mary Hall, of Warwick; Hester, wife of W.P. McCornall, of Newburgh, Magdeline, wife of Ora C. Simpson of Newton, N.J., and Alice, wife of James Albert Montross of Warwick.
Last Summer, in early July, Mr. and Mrs. Mabee moved into a pretty new cottage on Welling avenue, which they had built on a sightly lot next to the corner of Orchard street, and no other couple, young or old, ever spent a happier summer than they in their new and cozy home. The fall and winter, thus far, had been equally happy, and "Jim" was counting the days when he could get at his garden again. But it was for this true heart to literally die in harness, faithful and courageous to the last.
Funeral services will be held tomorrow, (Thursday) afternoon, at 1:30, at the house, the Rev. Herbert Hazzard conducting the service; interment in the family plot in Warwick Cemetery.13 
(Mentioned) oObit13 May 1914 Magdeline Simpson was mentioned in the obituary of of Keturah J. Mabee on 13 May 1914 at Warwick, Orange County, New York; Mrs Keturah Jane Winans died suddenly of apoplexy Thursday morning about half after ten o'clock at the residence of her daughter, Mrs Abram Shimer, with whom she made her home.
Mrs Winans was a daughter of John Mabee and Elizabeth Bodine Mabee and was born at the Mabee homestead on Colonial Ave, February 12th 1849. She was a descendant of Captain John Minturn of Revolutionary War fame.
Mrs Winans was a woman of sterling worth, modest and unassuming and always loyal; giving the best throughout her life to those she loved. The faith of good cheer was deep in her heart and she lived it without stint. Mrs Winans was a faithful member of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
The deceased is survived by two daughters, Miss Maude Winans, a teacher of Newburg; and Grace wife of Abram Shimer of Warwick; four sisters, Mrs Mary Hall and Alice, wife of James A Montross of Warwick; Mrs Ora Simpson of Newton; and Mrs W. P. McCornall of Newburg.

Mrs Montross was a daughter of the late John Mabee and Elizabeth Bodine and was the second wife of Mr Montross.
For the past year or more Mrs Montross has suffered from a nervous affection, which gradually undermined her health. For the past month she seemed to be gaining strength daily and hopes for her complete recovery to her former good health were entertained. She was stricken seriously ill the night before her death.
Mrs Montross is survived by her husband and two step children, Emma, wife of C W U Sneed of Newburgh, and William A Montross of New York City; three sisters, Mrs Mary Hall of Warwick, Hester, wife of W P McCornal of Newburgh; Magdalene, wife of Ora C Simpson of Newton, NJ.

Pitts, a near neighbor and Mr. Mabee's family physician, was called and word was sent to Mrs. Mabee, but he did not regain consciousness, expiring just as they arrived.
The news of Mr. Mabee's sudden death shocked the whole village; to his wife and sisters the blow was prostrating. For several years Mr. Mabee and his friends have been aware that his health was precarious, but the excellent care he took of himself seemed to build him up; several winters ago he took a trip to Pine Bluff, N.C., when threatened with heart trouble, and came home much benefited.
During the day, Monday, one of his employers had made the customary inquiry as to how he felt, and the cheery answer was: "I feel just fine; better than for a long while." On account of the bitter wind he remained at the office during the noon hour, eating lunch there, as was his custom in cold weather.
James Durham Mabee was the younger of four sons of the late John Mabee and Elizabeth Bodine. His brothers were Thomas, John, and William.
He was born at the Mabee homestead on Colonial avenue, Dec. 28, 1855, in the same house where his father was born in 1810. With the exception of a few years he spent the whole of his life as a resident of this village and town. After attending school at the little red school-house on Maple avenue, when William H. McElroy was the teacher, and for several years afterwards at the Warwick Institute, he was apprenticed, at the age of 17 to learn the printer's trade in the office of the Warwick Advertiser, then located at the corner of Lake street and Colonial avenue, and conducted by John Servin and Daniel F. Welling. He continued in the employ of the Advertiser, after becoming a full-fledged printer, until about 1888(?), when he went to New York, securing a position as compositor in the office of the New York Times. Returning to Warwick a few years later, he became associated with the Warwick Valley Dispatch, which had been established in 1885, and has been foreman of its composing, job, and press room for over twenty-two years. In this capacity Mr. Mabee had unusual ability; he was the best all-round printer we have ever known; his unflagging energy, (?) and resourcefulness, and his loyalty to his employers will never be forgotten. He was modest and gentle, and trustworthy.
Mr. Mabee was one born to the newspaper trade; he had the keen sense for news, and could put a touch of humor or pathos into a local story that insured its being read with interest and delight. His occasional contributions to the local columns of the Dispatch were sometimes ascribed to "our dreaming reporter." But it was (?n expe?litious) job-printer that Mr. Mabee excelled; he could turn off a mass of work deftly, neatly and quickly, keeping everybody on the floor as busy as himself. He has probably set up and printed more auction posters than any other man of his time in this section.
From early manhood Mr. Mabee has been a prominent member of the Odd Fellows fraternity, having served as Recording Secretary of Wawayanda Lodge No. 31 for about fifteen years, since the time of the late S. T. Lazear. He resigned this post in December, and the brethren of the lodge had raised a little purse to buy some token of esteem, to be placed in his new home. He was also a member of the Tuxedo Tribe of Red Men. He was serving his second term as Treasurer of the Village of Warwick at the time of his death. All his life Mr. Mabee has been an attendant of the Methodist church, and for several years past he has been a member of the Methodist Church of Warwick; and of the Brotherhood connected with it.
January 27, 1878, he married Emma, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Hunter of Greenwood Lake. They have two daughters, Olive Terwillerger, or New York, and Florence, wife of Frank T. Chambers of Middletown; two grandsons, - Elmer Chambers and Willis Terwillerger, - and five sisters survive him: Katurah Winans, and Mary Hall, of Warwick; Hester, wife of W.P. McCornall, of Newburgh, Magdeline, wife of Ora C. Simpson of Newton, N.J., and Alice, wife of James Albert Montross of Warwick.
Last Summer, in early July, Mr. and Mrs. Mabee moved into a pretty new cottage on Welling avenue, which they had built on a sightly lot next to the corner of Orchard street, and no other couple, young or old, ever spent a happier summer than they in their new and cozy home. The fall and winter, thus far, had been equally happy, and "Jim" was counting the days when he could get at his garden again. But it was for this true heart to literally die in harness, faithful and courageous to the last.
Funeral services will be held tomorrow, (Thursday) afternoon, at 1:30, at the house, the Rev. Herbert Hazzard conducting the service; interment in the family plot in Warwick Cemetery.12 
(Mentioned) oObit13 May 1914 Alice Brooks Montross was mentioned in the obituary of of Keturah J. Mabee on 13 May 1914 at Warwick, Orange County, New York; Mrs Keturah Jane Winans died suddenly of apoplexy Thursday morning about half after ten o'clock at the residence of her daughter, Mrs Abram Shimer, with whom she made her home.
Mrs Winans was a daughter of John Mabee and Elizabeth Bodine Mabee and was born at the Mabee homestead on Colonial Ave, February 12th 1849. She was a descendant of Captain John Minturn of Revolutionary War fame.
Mrs Winans was a woman of sterling worth, modest and unassuming and always loyal; giving the best throughout her life to those she loved. The faith of good cheer was deep in her heart and she lived it without stint. Mrs Winans was a faithful member of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
The deceased is survived by two daughters, Miss Maude Winans, a teacher of Newburg; and Grace wife of Abram Shimer of Warwick; four sisters, Mrs Mary Hall and Alice, wife of James A Montross of Warwick; Mrs Ora Simpson of Newton; and Mrs W. P. McCornall of Newburg.

(Mentioned) oObit2 October 1890 He was mentioned in the obituary of of John P Mabee on 2 October 1890 at Warwick, Orange County, New York; Sudden Death of John Mabee, Jr
John, or "Pud" Mabee, as he had been more familiarly known from his childhood, died of apoplexy at the home of his parents, in this village, at about 3:30 o'clock6 on Thursday afternoon last, aged 46 years and 10 months. He had but the evening previous returned home from a week's visit among acquaintances in Paterson and New York, and retired shortly after. Thursday morning he arose at an early hour and remained about the village until about 7 o'clock, then wended his way home and went to his room and to bed. It was known that he was feeling unwell and weary and he was not disturbed, until some hours after, when he was found to be in a comatose state. When his Condition was discovered speedy efforts were made for his relief, but without avail, and at the hour named life was extinct.
He was born in this village and enjoyed for a few years of his youth the educational advantages offered by our village school. At suitable age he was apprenticed to the tinsmith's trade which he followed as a journeyman for a brief period, and then abandoned for railroading, serving both upon the Erie and the Warwick Valley roads, and in this occupation he became very proficient. After a term of years at this he gave it np and had for a number of years been engaged again mainly as a tinsmith.
He was a most genial, companionable and quick witted young man, and when at his best was the life and soul of a company. Ever quick at repartee and with an inexhaustible fund of anecdotes he had hosts of friends. He was a staunch member of the Republican party and ever alert to defend its principles when they were assailed. He was unmarried, and is survived by his aged parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Mabee. His brothers, Conductor T. G. Mabee, Will O. Mabee and James D., formerly foreman of the Advertiser office, and five sisters survive him.
The funeral services, which were held at the home of the deceased on Sunday afternoon, were conducted by the Rev. Arthur Thompson of the M. E. Church this .village, and were largely attended. The remains were interred in the Warwick.11 
(Mentioned) oObit25 December 1890 James D Mabee was mentioned in the obituary of of John Mabee Jr on 25 December 1890 at Warwick, Orange County, New York; Another resident octogenarian has gone with the shades of the departing year. Mr. John Mabee, a native and nearly life-long resident of this village, departed this life peacefully, though rather unexpectedly sudden, at his home on Hudson st, on Saturday morning, December 20, in his 81st year, he having been born August 6, 1810, and at the homestead where he died. He had all his life enjoyed good health until about a year ago, when in alighting from a wagon at the postoffice, he missed his footing and fell heavily across a wheel, striking his breast and side, and was injured to such an extent thereby that he never fully recovered either his former vigor or from the shock occasioned. These injuries, and the infirmities incident to his advanced years, and the farther fact that since the sudden death, a few months ago, of his son John he had sorely grieved over that affliction, tended no doubt to shorten his span of life, which, but for them, might have been spared to his loving family another decade or more.
Mr. Mabee was, as we have stated, born in this village, and, excepting several of his early years spent in New York oity at his trade of tailoring, and a few months at the same occupation in New Orleans, had always resided here. He was married some 52 years ago in New York city to Miss Elizabeth Bodine, a native of Montgomery, who survives him, with whom and their numerous family of children and grandchildren gathered together beneath the parental roof, they had two simmers ago celebrated in a most joyous manner their golden wedding.
Mr. Mabee followed his trade until about 20 years ago, and then gave it np to engage in the retail grocery business, which latter he conduced for several years, in the meanwhile frequently being elected to the offices respectively of village collector, town poormaster and constable, the latter two of which he held for 18 consecutive years, notwithstanding he was a Republican and this a Democratic town. He was for about 30 years an honored member of Warwick Lodge F. & A. M., and filled the position of Chaplain in that organization for many years. He had also for many years been a worthy member of the M. E. Church here. He was naturally bright, vigorous, and intelligent for a man whose lot it was not to enjoy many educational advantages, but he was a great reader, a student of man and nature, and acquired a most valuable fund of information that many more highly favored ones will never possess. He was open-hearted and handed, and the soul of geniality, and ever had hosts of friends. He had a quick and retentive memory and was considered an encyclopedia of local history and biography, as many can testify.
Of his immediate family there survive him, beside his widow, the following children: Conductor Thomas G., of Suffern, N. Y; William 0.,of Fishkill; James D., of New York city; Hester, wife of W. P. Macornal, of Newburgh, N. Y; Maggie, wife of Ora Simpson, of McAfee, N. J., and Mary, Catherine and Alice at home; also; ten grandchildren. He was much loved, at home.12 
(Mentioned) oObit14 May 1891 James D Mabee was mentioned in the obituary of of Elizabeth Bodine on 14 May 1891 at Middletown, Orange County, New York; Mrs Elizabeth Bodine Mabee, mother of conductor Thomas G Mabee, and of James D Mabee, of Greenwood Lake, died Wednesday, at Warwick. She was aged 72 years. Mr Mabee died in December last, and it is thought the shock of their son John's death, last September hastened both father and mother to the grave. Heart trouble and pneumonia caused Mrs Mabee's death. The funeral will occur Saturday.13 
(Mentioned) oObit James D Mabee was mentioned in the obituary of of William Oscar Mabee at Warwick, New York; William Oscar Mabee, the son of the late John Mabee of Warwick, died at his home in New York city, last Thursday night, July 7, aged 53 years.
For a year and a half Mr Mabee has been seriously ill with heart disease and other complications which made it necessary for him to practically abandon active business he maintained his naturally cheerful spirit, however, and on the day he died had felt better than usual. Shortly after retiring for the night, Mrs Mabee awoke to find that her husband had expired without the slightest warning.
Mr Mabee was born in Warwick and resided here until about 25 years ago. His first business venture was the establishment of a grocery store on Railroad avenue, which he afterward sold to R F Vail, and went into business in New York city. Subsequesnly he conducted a gents' furnishing goods store in Newburgh and was appointed by William R Brown as Inspector of Clothing at Sing Sing Prison, a position which he filled with credit to himself and with great satisfaction to the State.
Mr Mabee was afterward connected with the North American Mercantile Agency as soliciting agent for New York city, continuing in this capacity until the time of his death.
While residing in Newburg Mr Mabee married Miss Lillie Belknap, daughter of Mrs John L Belknap, who with three children, survive him. The deceased is also survived by one brother, James D of the Dispatch office, and five sisters – Katurah and Mary of Warwick; Mrs Hester A McCornal of Newburgh; Mrs Magdalene B Simpson of Newton N. J., and Mrs Alice Montross of Warwick.
"Will" as he was familiarly called in town, was a model man in many respects. For modest politeness, kindness, good cheer, strict integrity and unostentatious Christian character it is rare to find his equal. He made friends everywhere and was universally respected and trusted.
Services were conducted at his late residence in New York city on Saturday evening and the remains were brought to Warwick on Sunday, the funeral being held at the M. E. Church in the afternoon by the Rev E H Carr, and were largely attended. Interment in Warwick Cemetery.14

oObit*14 January 1914  On 14 January 1914 at Warwick, Orange County, New York, the obituary of James D Mabee read: JAMES D. MABEE DIES ON WAY HOME MONDAY EVENING
Seized with Heart Failure in Piercing Winds on Orchard St.

As he left the Dispatch office for his home about five o'clock Monday evening, James D. Mabee, foreman of the office remarked: "I hate this cold weather."
Stopping at the news store of Fred V. Wood, near the railroad crossing, for his evening paper, Mr. Mabee met his friend, William Powell, to whom he said: "I wish I were home, away from this terrible wind; I dread that Orchard street stretch."
Passing out, he walked up the first block of the Oakland avenue hill and turned into Orchard street, and here the full force of the fierce west wind struck him. Nearing the end of the block, and not over three-hundred feet from his own snug home around the corner on Welling avenue, Mr. Mabee succumbed to the cruel blast; but he managed to get upon the porch of the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Wherry and to enter the hallway, where he was heard, feebly calling for help. As Mrs. Wherry quickly responded and opened the door to the living room, Mr. Mabee fell unconscious at her feet in the hall. Dr. G.F. Pitts, a near neighbor and Mr. Mabee's family physician, was called and word was sent to Mrs. Mabee, but he did not regain consciousness, expiring just as they arrived.
The news of Mr. Mabee's sudden death shocked the whole village; to his wife and sisters the blow was prostrating. For several years Mr. Mabee and his friends have been aware that his health was precarious, but the excellent care he took of himself seemed to build him up; several winters ago he took a trip to Pine Bluff, N.C., when threatened with heart trouble, and came home much benefited.
During the day, Monday, one of his employers had made the customary inquiry as to how he felt, and the cheery answer was: "I feel just fine; better than for a long while." On account of the bitter wind he remained at the office during the noon hour, eating lunch there, as was his custom in cold weather.
James Durham Mabee was the younger of four sons of the late John Mabee and Elizabeth Bodine. His brothers were Thomas, John, and William.
He was born at the Mabee homestead on Colonial avenue, Dec. 28, 1855, in the same house where his father was born in 1810. With the exception of a few years he spent the whole of his life as a resident of this village and town. After attending school at the little red school-house on Maple avenue, when William H. McElroy was the teacher, and for several years afterwards at the Warwick Institute, he was apprenticed, at the age of 17 to learn the printer's trade in the office of the Warwick Advertiser, then located at the corner of Lake street and Colonial avenue, and conducted by John Servin and Daniel F. Welling. He continued in the employ of the Advertiser, after becoming a full-fledged printer, until about 1888(?), when he went to New York, securing a position as compositor in the office of the New York Times. Returning to Warwick a few years later, he became associated with the Warwick Valley Dispatch, which had been established in 1885, and has been foreman of its composing, job, and press room for over twenty-two years. In this capacity Mr. Mabee had unusual ability; he was the best all-round printer we have ever known; his unflagging energy, (?) and resourcefulness, and his loyalty to his employers will never be forgotten. He was modest and gentle, and trustworthy.
Mr. Mabee was one born to the newspaper trade; he had the keen sense for news, and could put a touch of humor or pathos into a local story that insured its being read with interest and delight. His occasional contributions to the local columns of the Dispatch were sometimes ascribed to "our dreaming reporter." But it was (?n expe?litious) job-printer that Mr. Mabee excelled; he could turn off a mass of work deftly, neatly and quickly, keeping everybody on the floor as busy as himself. He has probably set up and printed more auction posters than any other man of his time in this section.
From early manhood Mr. Mabee has been a prominent member of the Odd Fellows fraternity, having served as Recording Secretary of Wawayanda Lodge No. 31 for about fifteen years, since the time of the late S. T. Lazear. He resigned this post in December, and the brethren of the lodge had raised a little purse to buy some token of esteem, to be placed in his new home. He was also a member of the Tuxedo Tribe of Red Men. He was serving his second term as Treasurer of the Village of Warwick at the time of his death. All his life Mr. Mabee has been an attendant of the Methodist church, and for several years past he has been a member of the Methodist Church of Warwick; and of the Brotherhood connected with it.
January 27, 1878, he married Emma, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Hunter of Greenwood Lake. They have two daughters, Olive Terwillerger, or New York, and Florence, wife of Frank T.

(Mentioned) oObit14 January 1914 Emma D. Hunter was mentioned in the obituary of of James D Mabee on 14 January 1914 at Warwick, Orange County, New York; JAMES D. MABEE DIES ON WAY HOME MONDAY EVENING
Seized with Heart Failure in Piercing Winds on Orchard St.

As he left the Dispatch office for his home about five o'clock Monday evening, James D. Mabee, foreman of the office remarked: "I hate this cold weather."
Stopping at the news store of Fred V. Wood, near the railroad crossing, for his evening paper, Mr. Mabee met his friend, William Powell, to whom he said: "I wish I were home, away from this terrible wind; I dread that Orchard street stretch."
Passing out, he walked up the first block of the Oakland avenue hill and turned into Orchard street, and here the full force of the fierce west wind struck him. Nearing the end of the block, and not over three-hundred feet from his own snug home around the corner on Welling avenue, Mr. Mabee succumbed to the cruel blast; but he managed to get upon the porch of the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Wherry and to enter the hallway, where he was heard, feebly calling for help. As Mrs. Wherry quickly responded and opened the door to the living room, Mr. Mabee fell unconscious at her feet in the hall. Dr. G.F. Pitts, a near neighbor and Mr. Mabee's family physician, was called and word was sent to Mrs. Mabee, but he did not regain consciousness, expiring just as they arrived.
The news of Mr. Mabee's sudden death shocked the whole village; to his wife and sisters the blow was prostrating. For several years Mr. Mabee and his friends have been aware that his health was precarious, but the excellent care he took of himself seemed to build him up; several winters ago he took a trip to Pine Bluff, N.C., when threatened with heart trouble, and came home much benefited.
During the day, Monday, one of his employers had made the customary inquiry as to how he felt, and the cheery answer was: "I feel just fine; better than for a long while." On account of the bitter wind he remained at the office during the noon hour, eating lunch there, as was his custom in cold weather.
James Durham Mabee was the younger of four sons of the late John Mabee and Elizabeth Bodine. His brothers were Thomas, John, and William.
He was born at the Mabee homestead on Colonial avenue, Dec. 28, 1855, in the same house where his father was born in 1810. With the exception of a few years he spent the whole of his life as a resident of this village and town. After attending school at the little red school-house on Maple avenue, when William H. McElroy was the teacher, and for several years afterwards at the Warwick Institute, he was apprenticed, at the age of 17 to learn the printer's trade in the office of the Warwick Advertiser, then located at the corner of Lake street and Colonial avenue, and conducted by John Servin and Daniel F. Welling. He continued in the employ of the Advertiser, after becoming a full-fledged printer, until about 1888(?), when he went to New York, securing a position as compositor in the office of the New York Times. Returning to Warwick a few years later, he became associated with the Warwick Valley Dispatch, which had been established in 1885, and has been foreman of its composing, job, and press room for over twenty-two years. In this capacity Mr. Mabee had unusual ability; he was the best all-round printer we have ever known; his unflagging energy, (?) and resourcefulness, and his loyalty to his employers will never be forgotten. He was modest and gentle, and trustworthy.
Mr. Mabee was one born to the newspaper trade; he had the keen sense for news, and could put a touch of humor or pathos into a local story that insured its being read with interest and delight. His occasional contributions to the local columns of the Dispatch were sometimes ascribed to "our dreaming reporter." But it was (?n expe?litious) job-printer that Mr. Mabee excelled; he could turn off a mass of work deftly, neatly and quickly, keeping everybody on the floor as busy as himself. He has probably set up and printed more auction posters than any other man of his time in this section.
From early manhood Mr. Mabee has been a prominent member of the Odd Fellows fraternity, having served as Recording Secretary of Wawayanda Lodge No. 31 for about fifteen years, since the time of the late S. T. Lazear. He resigned this post in December, and the brethren of the lodge had raised a little purse to buy some token of esteem, to be placed in his new home. He was also a member of the Tuxedo Tribe of Red Men. He was serving his second term as Treasurer of the Village of Warwick at the time of his death. All his life Mr. Mabee has been an attendant of the Methodist church, and for several years past he has been a member of the Methodist Church of Warwick; and of the Brotherhood connected with it.
January 27, 1878, he married Emma, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Hunter of Greenwood Lake. They have two daughters, Olive Terwillerger, or New York, and Florence, wife of Frank T. Chambers of Middletown; two grandsons, - Elmer Chambers and Willis Terwillerger, - and five sisters survive him: Katurah Winans, and Mary Hall, of Warwick; Hester, wife of W.P. McCornall, of Newburgh, Magdeline, wife of Ora C. Simpson of Newton, N.J., and Alice, wife of James Albert Montross of Warwick.
Last Summer, in early July, Mr. and Mrs. Mabee moved into a pretty new cottage on Welling avenue, which they had built on a sightly lot next to the corner of Orchard street, and no other couple, young or old, ever spent a happier summer than they in their new and cozy home. The fall and winter, thus far, had been equally happy, and "Jim" was counting the days when he could get at his garden again. But it was for this true heart to literally die in harness, faithful and courageous to the last.
