Edward Gilbourne and (1)Jane ?, (2)Abbie J Black

Edward was born in Ireland about 1811. No trace of him has yet been found in Ireland, and he is probably the Edward in Troy, Rensselaer Co., N.Y. in 1840. By 1850 he was aged 39 in Broadalbin, Fulton Co., N.Y., with wife Jane, 38 and daughter Frances aged 10. Edward and Jane were both born in Ireland, and Frances was born in New York. Edward's trade was recorded as Cab Maker.- probably short for Cabinet Maker. Also in the same houseld were C.G. Rowley, 23; George J Mills, 20; John Cumming, 20; and Catharine Howes, 7. All were born in Ireland but as far as it is known were unrelated to Edward. In !855 Edward, Jane and Frances were in Saratoga Co., N.Y. Edward was still a cabinet maker, and they had 40 year old Elisa Fuller as a servant. Jane died 13 October 1859 and was buried in Ballston Spa Village Cemetery, Saratoga County.Edward and Frances were still in Milton in 1860. Edward now gave his trade as waggon maker, with real estate valued at $1000 and personal estate of $500. Frances had left home by 1865 and was in Albany, N.Y., while Edward was still in Milton, in a boarding house, and again describing himself as a cabinet maker. Some time between 1865 and 1870 Edward married widow Abbie J. Tennant. They were in Milton in 1870 and had living with them Abbie's Irish-born widowed mother, Nancy Black, and a 66 year-old housekeeper, Kornz Roxy. Edward became a father again at the age of 63 when Abbie gave birth to a daughter, also named Abbie.
Edward had a major setback in 1876, when his workshop, on Malta Avenue, burnt down.

Edward Gilborne's cabinet and undertaker warerooms were partially destroyed by fire on Friday night [14 January 1876]. The workshop adjoining was totally destroyed, the fire being caused by a defective stove in the latter. Most of his stock was removed in safety. Loss on buildings, stock, tools etc. about $2,000; insured for $3,100. David J Barto, who worked for Gilborne, lost his tools, a sad loss to an aged workman who depended on his labor with them for his support.

The following year he was shown receiving $48 for work at the courthouse in Saratoga. Edward Gilborne met a tragic end in 1878:

E.J. Gilbourne, a prominent undertaker at Ballston Spa, N.Y. was found dead in a water tank into which he had fallen head first, so that he was unable to get out.
The coroner's jury censured the parties who found the body submerged in a tub of water in the rear of the Commercial Hotel at Ballston Spa on Monday evening, December 23, and who neglected to remove him at once to ascertain if he was still alive. It is stated that Gilbourne had been in ill health for several days, and it is supposed that he went to drink from a faucet, near the tub, when he slipped on the ice, plunged headlong into it, and was too feeble to extricate himself.

He was buried in Ballston Spa Village Cemetery, alongside his first wife.
Abby was living with her brother, Robert, and daughter in 1880. She died 29 January 1884 and was buried as Abby J Tarrant with her first husband. Her estate was left in trust for her daughter, to be administered by Frederick Tarrant, until she was 21 years old.

Frances Anna Gilbourne was the only known child of Edward and Jane, born in Rensselaer County - in 1841 according to a transcription from her gravestone. but Frances, when she entered the U.S.A. after a trip to Europe in 1913, gave her date of birth as 6 February 1840 .She remained with her parents until 1860 but by 1865 was living in Albany, Albany Co., N.Y., where she was staying with her aunt and uncle, John and Fanny Noble and their son James. John Noble was a supervisor on the railroad, and he and his wife had both been born in Ireland. She is found in various sources as Fanny, Fannie or Frances. It is not known which of John or Fanny Noble were related to Frances' mother or father.
She trained as a teacher, graduating in July 1862 from the State Normal School in Albany after a two year course. She started teaching in School No. 2 in Albany in 1862 or 63, although there is no occupation given on her 1865 census record. She has not been found in 1870, but in 1875 and 1880 was staying in a lodging house run by Sarah Clapham at 124 State St., Albany. At the end of 1901 school year she was given leave of absence after breaking an arm. She has not been found in the 1900 or 1910 censuses either, but retired from teaching in July 1909.
She had begun to travel before she retired. She sailed from New York and arrived at Glasgow 12 July 1908 on the S.S. Columbia. A Miss Anna J Bell from Albany on the same ship may well have been a companion. They travelled saloon class and stayed for six weeks, leaving for New York on 22 August on the Furnessia. On arrival in New York she gave her address as 63 Jay St., Albany. Unfortunately it is not known whether she spent all her vacation in the U.K. or whether she travelled to other parts of Europe.
She left New York again exactly a year later, this time sailing first class to Glasgow on the California. No record of her departure has been traced. A return journey has been found for 1910, when she left London 17 November on the Minnewaska bound for New York. On that occasion no record of her outward journey has been found – Did she stay in Europe for a year? It is feasible, as she had just retired from teaching.
The last journey we know of was in 1913, at the age of 73. Again, no record of her outward journey has been found, but she returned from London, first class, on the Minnetonka 8 November 1913. On arrival in New York, she again gave her address as 63 Jay St., but now also gave her date of birth – 6 February 1840.
As far as is known, she did not travel to Europe again – no doubt because of World War 1. She was still living in Jay St. in 1920. She died 20 December 1924 and was buried in Ballston Spa Village Cemetery near her parents..

Miss Frances A. Gilborne, a teacher in public school 2 for 46 years, and who had retired about 14 years ago died Saturday after a long illness. Miss Gilborne had taught many prominent business men and women in school 2, among them being Bishop Gibbons of Albany. Bishop Gibbons had visited Miss Gilborne during her illness. She leaves one half-sister, Mrs. Frederick Arnold of Wayville, Saratoga County.
The funeral will take place to-morrow morning at 11 o'clock from the funeral chapel of Marshall W. Tebbutt and Sons, 176 State Street. Burial will be in Ballston Spa.

Abbie B. Gilbourne was the daughter of Edward and his second wife, Abbie. Born about 1874 in Milton, Saratoga County, she was with her mother in Milton until the death of the latter in 1884. She was adopted by her uncle:

Little Abbie Gilborne, the eight year old daughter of the late Mrs. Abbie J. Gilborne, has been adopted into and found a good home in the family of Frederick Tarrant, of Saratoga Springs, who was the brother of Mrs. Gilborne's first husband.

Frederick Tarrant was also the executrix of her mothers will, and trustee of the estate being invested for Abbie. Her marriage to a Mr. Trimm has not been traced, but in 1892, aged 18, Abbie was recorded as Abbie Trim, living in Saratoga Springs with a Mrs. H.B. Trim. At the age of 73, the widowed Mrs. Trim is probably too old to be her mother-in-law (unless Abbie's husband is much older than she is herself), but could be her husband's grandmother. Mrs. Trim's occupation is given as 'boarding.' Abbie cannot be found in 1900, but in 1905 is one of five ladies boarding with Mr & Mrs Edward Weed in Saratoga Springs. Her occupation is given as 'type writer' - presumably a typist. This census did not record marital status, but Abbie's husband is not with her, nor is he with her in 1910 when she was boarding with Alvin & Claudia Freeman in Saratoga Springs. In 1920 Abbie was listed as 45, single, 'Friend of family' with Judson H and Ida V Stafford in Saratoga Town.
Abbie remarried 20 September 1920 in Stillwater Springs, Saratoga Co., to Frederick D Arnold. Known as Fred, this was his fourth marriage. His marriage to Fannie Neff 21 October 1886 ended with Fannie's death 21 May the following year. He remarried to Anna, surname unknown, who was shown with him in Stillwater in 1892. A daughter Estella A had been born in March 1890. The couple had another daughter, Anna M., in March 1894 but later parted. Anna and her children were living in Troy, Rensselaer Co. in 1900 while Fred was still in Stillwater. They divorced in 1902. Fred married for the third time to Jessie M. Visscher sometime after 1905. Jessie, 14 years younger that Fred, was with him in Stillwater in 1910, but she died 18 March 1913.
Fred and Abbie spent the rest of their lives in Stillwater. Fred had been an hotel keeper in 1892 but by 1900 was a farmer. He died 3 March 1937. He and three of his four wives are buried in Stillwater Union Cemetery. Anna Arnold's death has not been traced. The lives of Fred's two daughters have not been followed.

Fred Arnold, for half century a prominent resident of the east side of Saratoga Lake, died suddenly at 11:30 p.m. yesterday with oedema of the lungs. He was ill less than one and a half hours. Mr. Arnold was born in 1863 at what is known as the Arnold homestead one-half mile east of the lake road. He was a son of Charles E. and Amanda Hart Arnold. Survivors are his wife; a daughter of Linden, N.J.; a brother, Seth Arnold, and a sister, Mrs. Charles Chamberlin, both of Saratoga Springs; four grandchildren and two nieces
