    City of New York Municipal Archives: Bronx Death Certificate # 3449. On the death certificate James' age is reported as 82. His correct age was 89 yrs 8 mos. His parents are listed as "unknown." This error and the omissions would suggest, at the time of death, no family member was present to report correct information. It is not known who paid the Green-Wood Cemetery Burial Fee of $6.00 ($162.23 in 2013 dollars).

    Source: NYC Municipal Archives, Certificate # 4841, 11 Sep 1878.

    No official record of adoption or name change for Adelaide Mathenes/Leeason to "Taber" has been found. It appears that Adelaide's use of the surname Taber was informal and no legal change was made. Her marriage certificate say, "Addie Taber, name by adoption." This would explain why James Taber is not listed on her marriage certificate as her father, there is no family record of Adelaide, and why she wasn't involved in James Taber's later life, as he lived alone in a tenement during the last two years of his life and died in Bronx Lebanon Hospital without any family history or family member recorded on his death certificate. Adelaide "Taber" married Charles R. King 11 Sep 1878. She is found on the 1920 Census, but not on the 1930 Census. No record of any births to Charles and Adelaide King has been found.

  21. James' age was originally written as 86, which was afterward crossed out and 85 was written next to it. It appears as if whomever corrected the age went by the month and year written, which would have been correct if the year written was correct. I believe the year should have been crossed and corrected, which would have brought this record at least closer to his birth of Dec 1812.
  22. Green-Wood Cemetery Information: Lot 16895, Section 167, was purchased on 21 Aug 1866 by James Taber, 275 6th Ave., NY NY. It measures 95 square feet and cost $62.00. ($990.59 in 2013 dollars.) On 27 Aug 1866, Benjamin L. Lewin, interred on 12 Oct 1858 in Lot 8100, section 53, and Isaac Lavin, interred on 10 July 1866 in Lot 4259, were moved into Lot 16895. Gravestone severely weathered, illegible.
