  • Notes 
    • "Abraham operated the "Riverview Farm" boarding house that was located in Town of Tusten about 3 miles above Narrowsburg on the NY bank of the Delaware River. The Erie Railroad stopped in front of the hotel at what was known as "Dexter's Crossing". The Dexter and McGooey families feuded over the naming of a nearby watertower stop of the Erie. The Erie finally named the stop "Nobodies". (Popielarz).
