Armed with a clue from a Lockwood researcher, I located the Surrogate Court Probate Papers that prove Zabud Lounsbury is the father of Abraham Lockwood's wife, Maria Lounsbury.
According to the documents, Zabud died 7/19/1859 and "left neither a wife or children but five grandchildren surviving him viz children of Abram Lockwood: Charlotte Hayes wife of Abraham Hayes, aged 27 years Stephen Lockwood aged 24 years Racheal Gardner wife of Cornelius Gardner aged 22 years Amanda Hayes wife of Jacob Hayes aged 20 years and Zabud Lockwood aged 16 years all residing in the town of Cortlandt in said Coounty except Racheal Gardner wife of Cornelius Gardner resides in the town of Putnam Valley, Putnam County, State of New York."
My search has been successfully concluded! Zabud is my Charlotte's grandfather and my gr-gr-gr-gr-grandfather!
