Seeking Information Re: Abraham Tallman Ferdon

Am looking for information on Abraham Tallman Ferdon, specifically birth information (with source). According to Census Records and his Death Certificate, Abraham was born around 1856/57 in New Jersey. He was the son of James Ferdon and Sarah Maria (Tallman)Ferdon. NJ Archives has no birth record for Abraham for the period of 1850-1860, however records consistently state he was born there. All of his siblings, both older and younger, were born in NYC and the family lived in NYC always. This raised in itself raised my suspicion, but of course he could have been born during a visit to NJ (James' father Jacobus lived there). I am wondering if he could have been born a Tallman (his mother's family name) and been adopted by the Ferdons. Before I write to the archives and wait again, does anyone have any information on Abraham?
