In the 1840 census for Marion Co OH (Montgomery Twp), there is a Gabriel Wallan with a five person household as follows:1 male & 2 females under 5 years; 1 male & 1 female between the ages of 20 & 29.Immediately following the household headed by Gabriel is one a bit difficult to read but seems to be headed by a John A Wallan (or might be John B. Wallan).
Then in the 1850 census for Sussex Co NJ (Wantage Twp) there is the following 2 person household: Gabriel Waling, 38, m, Laborer, b NJ Ephy Springster, 48, f, b NJ COMMENT:This household is adjacent to a household headed by Constant Fuller.
QUESTIONS: Are these two Gabriels the same person? If so, what happened to Gabriel's family between 1840 & 1850? Does anyone have any further information on this Gabriel? Who was the John A/B Wallan next to Gabriel in the 1840 census? Any speculations as to the parents of this/these Gabriel(s)? Who was the Ephy Springster in the 1850 census?
