Additional Research Notes

This family apparently was in Albany at the time of Fabian's birth but went to New York City, or Brooklyn and remained there until sometime before 1880 when they came to Berne and Westerlo. It's not clear that the soldier ever lived in Berne or was ever in this area until after his service.
