Thank you for your reply. For some reason I did not get a notification of your reply in my e-mail. I happened to check the Sullivan County message board on the 10th and there it was! Thinking that I had gone about as far as I could with the Dabrons (Arthur, Jnr's daughter Elizabeth, wife of David Romer, was my husband's third great-grandmother on his maternal side), I had put that family aside three years ago. Your query motivated me to refresh my memory and to do a bit of searching the last couple of days.
Following in the order of your reply:
Arthur,Sr.'s children: On familysearch.org I found birth records for Rhoda (1762), Thomas (1764-1767), Arthur (1766), Robert (1769), Thomas (1772-1773), Elizabeth (1780), and William (1783) in Norton, Durham but not for Alice and John. Do you know their dates of birth?
The passenger listing for Arthur Dabron is intriguing. Unfortunately, I don't have a subscription either to genealogybank.com.
Elizabeth, wife of James Abrams: in Arthur Sr.'s will, of Wappings Creek, New York... should be Wappingers Creek which is in Dutchess County, New York. My recent search turned up a James Abrams in Fishkill, Dutchess, New York in 1810 and, in 1820, he was in Poughkeepsie, Dutchess, New York. Fishkill and Poughkeepsie, both being near to Wappingers Creek, I feel comfortable that this James Abrams is Elizabeth's husband. In the 1810 Census for Fishkill, the Abrams household consisted of 1 male 16 thru 25; 1 male 26 thru 44; 1 female under 10; 1 female 26 thru 44. The 1820 Census for Poughkeepsie shows 1 male 26 thru 44; 2 females under 10; 1 female 10 thru 15; 1 female 26 thru 44. No sign of them in the 1830 and beyond Censuses....where did they go is the question.
William 20 Apr 1783 and not mentioned in Arthur Sr.'s will: as early as 1809 when the will was dated/written, William was not mentioned which indicates to me he must have died previously.
William, son of Arthur, Jnr. and Margaret: you cite 6 Apr 1795 as his d.o.b. On Find A Grave there is a memorial for a William Dabron, 15 Feb 1798 - 3 Jan 1870 (see http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=3Dgr&GRid=3D50422704; also his wife's http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=3Dgr&GRid=3D50422645; his son Arthur http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=3Dgr&GRid=3D50422515, and daughter Gertrude Maria http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=3Dgr&GRid=3D50418997 ). Most likely the cemetery date for William is incorrect.
Arthur, Jnr. had daughter Jane: thank you, I didn't know about Jane. As you surmised, I feel too there must have been other children...the Arthur Dabron, I would think he is Junior, in the 1810 Poughkeepsie Census has a 1 male less than 10,1 male 10 to 15, 1 male16-25, and 3 females 10-15 and 1 16-25. Chasing them down will be a project.
John Dabron, hiccup: I have wondered about him also. Taking a closer look at the 1840 Census for Lumberland, Sullivan, New York, I noticed that living in his household was a male 70 thru 79..his father perhaps, or his wife's, born betw. 1761 and 1770....it could be Arthur, Jnr. It is with the 1850 Census for Bethel, Sullivan, New York that this John Dabron and family begin to take shape, although DABRON is massacred as DEBERAN making it tricky to find John at first; his wife's name was Martha, children, all named, were many per 1850 Census with several more added in the 1860 (see John DBSON). By 1870 the family, this time as DABSON, is found in Damascus, Wayne, Pennsylvania and is still there in 1880 under DABRON(!). This Damascus just over the state line from Sullivan County...in effect, the family did not move all that far.The interesting thing I learned from the 1880 Census was that John's parents were both born in England.doesn't answer who his parents were unfortunately. Arthur, Jnr and Margaret would be my first guess.
I hope some of the above will be of help and is not too repetitious of what you might all ready know. I'm going to continue poking around a bit and will let you know if I discover anything. I tried sending this message yesterday to your e-mail address as given on genealogy.com...it was not deliverable, "mailbox unavailable"...wonder why.
