    Hibernia Ship's Passenger Manifest

    The first meeting of the Industrial Home Association, No. 1, New York, John Stevens, Founder, took place on 9 July 1850 in the meeting room of the Mechanics Mutual Protection, No. 11, Cottage & Bleecker Streets. It's purpose was sign up 1000 members, to collect "dues" and to buy land on which to place lots and homesteads. The five Taber brothers, Thomas, William, James, John and Alexander joined. Between them, they purchased nine Lots in Mt. Vernon, NY by lottery for choice of lot selection.

  10.   William Taber's Interment Record reports his age at death as 80. His correct age was 87 years, 3 months, 16 days. This error would suggest that William's older brother, James, was not capable at this point of providing correct information and that no other responsible family member was present.
