||1868 map of Canajoharie, New York
This 1868 map of Canajoharie, New York was obtained from the Canajoharie Public Library. It contains references to 4 Abeling families, including...
C. Abeling - Front Street. This is believed to be Charles Henry Abeling(Carl Ebeling) who immigrated to the area around 1832.
C. Abeling - Maple Ave, believed to be Charles E Abeling, born in 1840. We know that Charles eventually purchased land in this exact area from his older brother Henry around 1874, and our guess is that he lived at this location in 1868 prior to formally buying the property from his brother.
H.C Abeling - Maple Ave, believed to be Henry Charles Abeling, who was known to own an extensive amount of land along Maple Ave.
F.A Abeling - Corner of Montgomery Street, Mapletown Rd. We believe this to Frederick Augustus Ebeling, who did not switch his name to Abeling, eventhough the map maker might have thought so. Frederick A Ebeling was a nephew of Charles Abeling (Carl Ebeling).

A memorable family.
Our special correspondence.
CANAJOHARIE,May 29 - In 1829, Charles Abeling and wife arrived at this place from Germany, and being pleased with the surroundings, settled down. They have resided here since and have had eleven children, ten boys and one girl, all of who are living and prospering. Nine of the boys, the oldest being 47 years old, and the youngest 23 years of age, are residing here, the eldest being the leading cigar manufacturer of this section. The other boy is following a successful occupation in California. Three of the boys went through the late war and never received a blemish. All of the children here are married, and the number of grandchildren is very large. Charles Abeling is now upwards of 72 years of age, while his wife is upwards of 70. Both are healthy, considering their years, and bid fair to be centennarians. W.F.C
