According to the book, "The History of Woodstock, CT, Genealogy of Woodstock Families" by Clarence Bowen:Before she married John Bugbee, she was married to Robert Corbit who died in Woodstock on 9/18/1695.E. Holmes Bugbee speaks of a family legend relating to this Abiah (Abiel?) who having a legacy coming to her rode to Roxbury on horseback, collected the same in Spanish dollars, and in riding back to Woodstock over the Connecticut Path was overtaken by a robber who demanded her money. She parleyed and maneuvered to get the robber's horse and her own headed in the right direction and then in handing her bag of money to the robber purposely dropped the same. When the robber got off his horse to pickup the money, Abiah whipped both horses and the robber's horse followed her own. When she finally came to a cabin by the roadside she found in the saddle bags on the robber's horse more dollars than she had lost and with this money and the robber's horse she returned safely to Woodstock(Letter dated Putnam, Nov. 30, 1896, from E. Holmes Bugbee, owned byLucian Willis Bugbee, Jr.)May peace be with you Abiel....
