This is being postedto help any one searching the name of Gaby in TN. It is a timeline I put together to help find the parents and ancestors of my Ggrandmother Mary (Polly) Gaby, who was an orphan. I believe it shows a definite connection of the Gabys of TN toMartin Gaby and his family in PA.
I believe I have touched on all the censuses of VA NC and TN pertaining to the name Gaby and its variations.The parents of my Mary may not even be listed in these censuses. Its almost certain that her parents and siblings stopped being a family around 1845, and with the migrationto places like Oregon, California, Texas,and Utah,and other points west. They could have left with great hopes and met with disaster along the way.So I do hope someone can use thes pages.
