The 1790 Federal Census lists Abram Andrews as Head of Household, residing in Watertown, Litchfield, Connecticut. Watertown was originally part of Waterbury.
On the occasion of his daughter Mabel's wedding June 17, 1801, Abraham deeded his house and farm of 33 acres to his son in law Reuben Scoville on condition that Reuben provide for Abraham and his wife, Mabel.
He passed away on 25 October 1804 and he is buried in Cornwall Central Cemetery, Cornwall, Addison County, Vermont, USA.
Abraham and Mabel died in in Vermont, perhaps living with one of their sons. Mabels death is uncertain. The genealogies have her death as 1831, in Vermont, she would have been 104. Perhaps a transcription error?
