(Possibly died in Danby, Rutland Co, VT) "He is doubtless the Eleazer Abbe of the 1790 Census in Danby, Rutland County, Vt."

From the book published in 1916 "Abbe -Abbey Genealogy In Memory of John Abbe and his Descendants" by Cleveland Abbe and Joseph Genung Nichols

ELEAZER ABBE, son of John and Hannah ( ) Abbe, born probably in East Hartford, Conn.

He was a party to land transfers in Hartford in 1752 and 1754. (Hartford Deeds, 8, pages 26, 303; 12, page 358.) He was on the list of an independent company raised in 1755 during the French and Indian War, and 3 lead pounds and 6 flints were delivered to him. (Connecticut Historical Society Collections, IX, 84.)

He is credited with 5 days service under Captain Ebenezer Wallisant, dated April 2, 1778. (Vermont Revolutionary War Rolls.)

The records of the Pension Office at Washington show that Eleazer Abbe entered the service in the 3d Connecticut Regiment, April 16, 1778, and was discharged from the 1st Regiment, September 29, 1781 ; he was a resident of East Hartford in 1788; bounty land warrant No. 267 for 100 acres was allowed on this service and was delivered to Joel Barlow, April 25, 1805. He is doubtless the Eleazer Abbe of the 1790 Census in Danby, Rutland County, Vt., one male over 16, one under 16, 3 females in family. One of his family may have been Benjamin Abbey, recorded in the 1800 Census in Rutland,1 male and 1 female between 26 and 45, 5 boys and 1 girl under 10.

Married MARY . There was a widow Mary Abbe died in East Hartford February 1, 1804, and one who died April 10, 1809, possibly this Mary.
