    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).

      ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY-THIRD INFANTRY
      (Three Years)

      H. McLaughlin, C. F. Putnam, Abram V. Davis.

      This regiment, recruited in the counties of Fulton, Montgomery,
      Saratoga, Clinton, Essex and Warren, was organized at Fonda and
      there mustered into the U. S. service on Oct. 18, 1862, for three
      years. It left the same day for Washington, was first stationed
      at Alexandria as provost guard, and during most of the year 1863,
      did garrison and guard duty about the capital.

      It was then transferred to the Department of the Gulf, where it
      was assigned to the 1st brigade, 1st (Emory's) division, 19th
      corps, with which it took part in the Red River campaign, meeting
      with severe loss at Pleasant Hill. It was active at Mansura and
      was warmly commended for its bravery in these battles by the
      commanding general.

      In July, 1864, it returned to Virginia with the 1st and 2nd
      divisions; on its arrival at Washington it was ordered into
      Maryland to confront Gen. Early, and then served with Sheridan in

      Its loss at the Opequan was 69 killed and wounded, and at Cedar
      creek, 81 killed, wounded and missing. The regiment continued to
      serve in the valley until April, 1865, when it moved with
      Dwight's division to Washington where it participated in the
      grand review in May.

      In July it sailed for Savannah, Ga., and while stationed there
      won the esteem and respect of the citizens by the gentlemanly
      conduct of its officers and men. Col. Davis was brevetted
      brigadier-general for meritorious service.

      The regiment was mustered out at Savannah on Oct. 2, 1865, under
      command of Lieut.-Col. McLaughlin. It lost during service 1
      officer and 40 men killed and died of wounds; 1 officer and 160
      men died of disease and other causes; total deaths, 202.
