I'm trying to locate info on Abraham Ely. He was born 22 Aug 1788 in New Jersey, died
16 Feb 1876 in Michigan. He married Sarah, who was born 29 Feb 1792 in New York and died
27 Nov 1858, place unknown, but assume Michigan as that is where they lived. He married
again Sally Shumway in Chatham, Columbia, New York, 31 May 1860. I think he might have
served with Capt. Babcock's Co. of Vol. Cav. in the War of 1812. An Abraham Ely is on
the 1820 Fed. Census in Chatham, Columbia, NY, which seems to fit. Can anyone help?
