4) NOTES (with source citations as indicated in brackets):
The data on this family was obtained from the books The Able Aubles by Juanita Hayer Crampton and Early Germans in New Jersey by Chambers.
Very little is known about this Johannes/John Abel/Able/Auble family. They apparently lived near New Germantown, Hunterdon, New Jersey.
Johannes/John Abel/Able/Auble was born in about 1758 to Michael and Christina (--?--) Able/Abel, probably in Roxbury, Morris County, New Jersey.
He apparently was married three times:
1) to Sophia Trimmer (born about 1755, died before 1811) in 1777, who was the mother of his seven children between 1778 and 1796.
2) to widow Mary Cripps (born about 1762, died before 1818) in 1811, who died before 1818.
3) to Catherine --?--, who was the administrator of his estate..
The marriage record of John Abel to Sophia Trimmer in the Zion Lutheran Church records say:
" John Abel & Sophia Trimmer, Jan. 30"
Zion Lutheran Church birth and baptism records (New Germantown, New Jersey) for the children of Johannes/John and Sophia (Trimmer) Abel/Able/Auble were found in:
Ben Van D. Fisher, "Records of the Corporation of Zion in New Germantown in West Jersey - Births and Baptisms," Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey, Volumes XXX to XXXIII (1900-1903). The Zion Lutheran Church records are also found in the IGI index.
There are a number of John Able's in the early tax lists of northern New Jersey, but none in Hunterdon County. There was one in Roxbury township, Morris County, New Jersey in 1793. In 1814, a John Auble was taxed in Chester, Morris County, New Jersey, along with a John Auble Jr.
No census records for 1790 to 1820 are available for New Jersey.
The Inventory of the estate of John Able of Byram, New Jersey was taken on 14 April 1818 and was appraised by David Casterline and William Seeh. The inventory totaled about $310. It was submitted to the Sussex County Surrogate's Court at Newton on 15 May 1818 by Catherine Auble and EJosiah Munson, administrators of the estate.
