52 Ancestors - Week 21: #28, David Auble (1817-1894)

Amy Johnson Crow suggested a weekly blog theme of "52 Ancestors" in her blog post Challenge:  52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks on the No Story Too Small blog.  Here is my ancestor biography for week #21:

David Auble (1817-1894) is #28 on my Ahnentafel List, and is my 2nd great-grandfather. He married #29 Sarah Knapp (1818-ca 1900) in 1844.


I am descended through:

*  their son, #14, Charles Auble (1849-1916), who married  #15 Georgianna Kemp (1868-1952) in 1898.
*  their daughter, #7 Emily Kemp Auble (1899-1977), who married #6 Lyle Lawrence Carringer (1891-1976) in 1918.

* their daughter, #3 Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002), who married #2 Frederick Walton Seaver (1911-1983) in 1942.
*  their son, #1 Randall J. Seaver (1943-....)


To create this post, I made an Individual Summary report in RootsMagic 6, then saved it into an RTF file.  I then copied and pasted the Person, the Individual Fact List, the Marriages/Children, the General Notes, and the Source Citations into this blog post.  Unfortunately, the source citations superscripts did not survive this process as superscripts, so I put them in brackets in the lists and notes below, and without brackets in the Source Citation list.  I have images of many of these records, but have not included them in this blog post due to the length of the post.  Many of them have been transcribed or shown in Amanuensis Monday and Treasure Chest Thursday posts.

4)  PERSON NOTES  (with source citations as indicated in brackets):



David Auble was probably born in Stillwater, Sussex, New Jersey in 1817.[3]  This date is supported by other available records.  The case for John and Ann (Rouw) Auble being the parents of David Auble is circumstantial.  The only real clue is the death record for David's brother, Robert, which lists his father as John Auble.  Robert Auble (1830-1920) is identified as David Auble's brother in David's obituary.  At the time of the birth of David and Robert Auble, the only Auble residing in Sussex County, New Jersey was this John Auble.

The "Newspaper clippings from the Sussex (NJ) Register, 1897-1899" (online database accessed on Ancestry.com) had two articles concerning David Auble. These items were in a column titled "Ancient Local History, compiled from The Register," which was published in Newton, Sussex County, New Jersey.  The articles are:

a) From "The Register" for 4 April 1838:

"David L. Foster and David Auble form partnership and begin business as shoemakers in building recently occupied by George Dennis, and next to W.T. Anderson's law office."

David L. Foster was the husband of Sarah (Knapp) Auble's sister, Hannah Maria (Knapp) Foster.  This may be how David Auble became acquainted with Sarah Knapp, through his business partner.

b) From "The Register" for 10 September 1844:

"William Auble, a native of Sussex, and a brother to David Auble, stabbed to death during a quarrel in Philadelphia, by two brothers, who sang obscene songs as Auble was returning from a party with ladies. Auble had a loaded pistol, but did not use it. The deceased and the men who sent him to an untimely grave were intimate acquaintances, and but for improper use of strong drink the trouble never would have occurred."

Perhaps the death of his brother is why David and Sarah Auble named their first son William.

David Auble moved his family to Newark, Essex, New Jersey after his marriage in 1844.[3]  He was a boot and shoe maker for most of his life.

The Newark [N.J.] Daily Advertiser newspaper dated 7 January 1848 (accessed on GenealogyBank) had this notice on page 3:

"DISSOLUTION -- The Partnership heretofore existing between the subscribers under the firm of Knapp & Auble is this day dissolved by mutual consent.  The business will in future be continued by David Auble, who hopes to merit and receive a share of the public patronage.
                                                                             SAMUEL C. KNAPP
                                                                             DAVID AUBLE"

In the 1850 United States census, the David Auble family resided in the West Ward of Newark, Union County, New Jersey.[4]  The household included:

*  David Auble -- age 32, male, a boot and shoe man, born in NJ
*  Sarah Auble -- age 30, female, born NJ
*  William Auble -- age 5, male, born NJ, attended school
*  Frances Auble -- age 3, female, born NJ
*  Charles Auble -- age 1, male, born NJ.

The Newark [N.J.] Daily Advertiser newspaper dated 15 June 1855 (accessed on GenealogyBank) had this notice on page 3:

"NOTICE -- The co-partnership heretofore existing under the name of Auble & Gordon, (dealers in boots & shoes) is this first day of June, 1855, dissolved by mutual consent.

"The business will be resumed by David Auble, who alone is authorized to settle all claims and collect and receive all dues of the said late firm.
                                                                                     DAVID AUBLE
                                                                                     THOMAS GORDON"

In the 1860 United States census, the David Auble family resided in the Fourth Ward of Newark,  New Jersey.[5] The family included:

*  David Auble -- age 42, male, worked in a shoe store, had personal property of $500, born NJ
*  Sarah Auble -- age 39, female, born NJ
*  Wm A. Auble -- age 15, male, born NJ, attended school
*  Mary F. Auble -- age 13, female, born NJ, attended school
*  Chas Auble -- age 11, male, born NJ, attended school
*  Kate Auble -- age 8, female, born NJ
*  Anna Auble -- age 1, female, born NJ

The family moved to Terre Haute, Vigo County, Indiana in about 1865.

In the 1870 United States census, the Daniel Auble family resided in Terre Haute city, Vigo County, Indiana.[6] The household included:

*  Daniel Auble (perhaps this is a census taker's error for David, it is obviously the David Auble family) -- age 53, male, a boot and shoemaker, with $2,500 in real estate and $200 in personal property, born NJ
*  Sarah Auble -- age 50, female, keeping house, born NJ
*  Mary Auble -- age 23, female, a teacher, born NJ
*  Charles Auble -- age 21, male, a painter, born NJ
*  Kate Auble -- age 17, female, at home, born NJ, attended school
*  Anna Auble -- age 10, female, at home, born NJ, attended school
*  Cora Auble -- age 8, female, at home, born NJ, attended school

In the 1880 US census, the David Auble family resided at 40 Chestnut Street in Terre Haute, Vigo County, Indiana.[7] The household included:

*   David Auble -- white, male, age 63, married, shoemaker, born NJ, father and mother born NJ
*  Sarah G. Auble -- white, female, age 62, wife, married, keeps house, born NJ, father born NY, mother born NJ) 
*  Charles Auble -- white, male, age 30, son, single, painter, born NJ, parents born NJ
*  Fannie Auble -- white, female, age 32, daughter, single, at home, born NJ, parents born NJ
*  Katherine Auble -- white, female, age 24, daughter, single, at home, born NJ, parents born NJ
*  Anna M. Auble -- white, female, age 20, daughter, single, at home, born NJ, parents born NJ

David Auble died on 22 March 1894 in Terre Haute, age 77.[1-3]  

His obituary reads (probably from a Terre Haute newspaper,[3] a yellowed copy was found in the papers of Betty (Carringer) Seaver):

"David Auble, who died Thursday, aged 77 years, will be buried this afternoon from the family residence, 411 Chestnut Street.  Deceased was well-known and one of Terre Haute's most honored citizens.  He has been an invalid for the past two years and was confined to his home for over a year.  He was born at Stillwater N.J. in 1817 and came to Terre Haute in 1865.  For several years he was engaged in the boot and shoe business on Main Street, during which time he became widely known for his strict and honest business practices.  He was married in 1844 to Miss Sarah Knapp, of Newton N.J., who is a sister of C.C. Knapp of this city and also a sister of Judge Manning M. Knapp, at one time an eminent jurist of New Jersey, who held the Supreme Court bench of that state for seventeen years and died suddenly in the courtroom two years ago.  Mrs. Auble survives her husband with five children, two sons and three daughters:  William in Kansas City, Charles in Chicago, one married daughter Mrs. Harry Buntin of Bushnell, Ill. and Frances and Katherine at home.  One sister and two brothers also survive the deceased, Miss Elizabeth Auble of Philadelphia, now 80 years old, and Robert Auble of Blairstown, N.J., and Hampton Auble of Philadelphia. Deceased was a devout member of the Centenary M.E. Church.  He cast his first vote for William Henry Harrison, a fact which he often spoke of with pride before his death."

David Auble is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in Terre Haute, Vigo County, Indiana.  His fairly large stone says only "David Auble, 1817-1894." [2]

Great post :)I wanted to point out a couple little things: "David Auble (1817-1894) is #28 on my Ahnentafel List, and is my 2nd great-grandmother. He married #29 Sarah Cutter (1818-ca 1900) in 1844.
" hehe....Pretty sure you meant great grandFATHER not great-grandMOTHER and I think he married Sarah Knapp not Sarah Cutter (Sarah Knapp's mother was Sarah Cutter) which is what you have in the post but not the summary.

Hi Kris,

Thanks for the corrections. I fixed them. Nice to know that someone read this! Copy and paste only works well if you proof it after doing it for content not just for spelling!
