    1868 map of Canajoharie, New York
    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).
