In Reply to: Re: John D. Larabee and the Michigan Larabees from mid 1800's by Mary Larabee of 257

I wish I had my paper work in front of me, but I don't, but will reply anyway with what bit I can remember. I have a Merritt Larabee, born 1834, NY. Married to Mary. He had at least two children Olivia Larabee and David H. Larabee. The last record I find of them is in Manhattan. ON census records it lists both of Merritt's parents being born in NY.

On one of the census records he and Mary are living in the household of Jacob ??? (can't remember the last name) and Elizabeth. Merritt is age 18 and Mary is 16. They must be newly weds.

Olivia Larabee married Alfred H. Ayers in Manhattan, NY NY. The family stayed in and around Manhattan from then on.

On one census Merritt's name is spelled "Mariett" I think that is the spelling.

I should have my paperwork in the next couple of days and will be glad to share what I have on this family.

Look in Pittstown NY for the family in 1850, 1860. I thought that a Jacob Larabee might be Merritt's father but no proof as of yet...It could very well be "John".
