    The authority under which George Frederick was placed into Leake & Watts is not known. The Index to the Surrogate's Court Proceedings, Westchester County at The Westchester County Historical Society, 2199 Saw Mill River Road, Elmsford, NY 10523, was researched. There is no record of George or John Taber. This doesn't necessarily indicate no proceeding took place. Previous to archiving, these records were not secured.

  4.   George F. Taber wrote to his Aunt, "I don't know when I am going a way but I think I will go the first of March." He would be 14 at the time he wrote this letter. I assume he was notifying his Aunt of his impending release. He also wrote, "I have not heard from Annie since last September." "Annie" has not been identified. He ended with, "Please Answer as soon as Possible."
