Interesting!...one of my cousins thought that our great grandma's last name was GOBEL but then another cousin found it as GABRIEL. Ours came from germany in 1886. And Agusta Gabriel was married to Oscar Kahler. I don't THINK she had relatives who came with them to the states..but one never knows! what war are you talking about? I'm sure I will have to think of a way to find more info on my line in gemrany since they came here 1800's. But I'm kind of hoping someone out there my be connected somehow.
