  1. Documents relating to the colonial history of the state of New Jersey. (Newark, New Jersey: The Daily Journal Establishment, 1880-1949).

    From the same place (Roxbury) we likewise learn, That a Servant Man belonging to one Matthias Auble, died suddenly there much about the same Time: And a Jury being called, and his body opened by the Physicians, it was judg'd his Death was occasioned by the Cruelty of his Master a few Days before in chastising him for some Misdemeanour; and Auble was immediately taken up and secured in the County Goal in order to be brought to a Trial for the same. - The N. Y. Gazette or the Weekly Post Boy, Jan. 13 1755.

    I have attached this record of an arrest of a Matthias Auble to this person because Person:Matthias Abel (1) was the only person with that name at that time in Roxbury as far as I know. (Surname Abel was often spelled Auble) user:cthrnvl
