The following information is what I have found in my research of the Gaby name startig with Ulrich Gaby and Descending for 4 generations. Only names I can place are listed. A lot of it has been copied from other internet sites, but I have checked carefully to make the information correct. A small amount on Martin Gaby Sr. was obtained from library sources and the LDS Family History Centers and their internet sites. As far as I can determine Isaac, son of Martin Gaby Sr. is the only Gaby to go to from PA to TN by way of MD. and VA. Other sons and daughters, I know not which ones, of Martin Gaby Sr went to Indiana.

The meeting house is the oldest unaltered church building in the Brotherhood.on the land which he had purchased from Conrad Price.
A biography of Martin Gaube states that he was an early Brethren settler, and a leading figure in the Maiden Creek congregation, in the Oley region of Berks County, where he settled in 1766, near what came to be known as Pricetown.

30.Mary GABY was born about 1838 in Washington Co. TN.She died about 1889 in Pauls Valley OK.Mary would have been one of the first children of Isaac P. Gaby and Mary Hibarger.Mary Hibarger is the sister of Martha Hibargerwho was a previous wife of Isaac.
Mary's father, Isaac P. Gaby died in 1848 in Washington Co. TN.Mary would have been about 10 yrs old at the time of his death.
A letter writtten in later years (1979)by Kenneth Eads, son of John and Lucy Tayiah Eads to Rosa Easter,another descendant of Mary's through daughter Rebecca,mentions that "Mary was a Tennesseean.She was an orphan raised by people by the name of Bowman."Kenneth states in the letter that he got this information from his father, John Rhea Eads, who was the oldest son of Francis Marion and Mary Gaby Eades.
Mary Gaby is listed in the 1850 census as "Polly Gaby" and is livingin the household of Christina Bowman, age 61. There is an older Joseph Bowman, age 59, also listed in this family. Joseph could possibly be an elder of a ChurchA letter written by Molly Pappin to Lorraine Hilty,a descendant of Mary and Francis mentions that Mary went by the nickname Polly in her early years. Date of this letter is unknown.
Counting Polly,there are5 Gaby children listed in the 1850 census of Washington Co.Tennessee and 2 in Ashe Co. North Carolina, all living in households with different surnames. five of these are Mary's siblings, with 2 being half brothers.
In 1860 Mary is still listed in the household of Christina Bowman.Joseph Bowman is not listed in this census.
A marriage record of Sullivan Co. TNshows Francis andMary Marrying on 4 June, 1870.
Just a few weeks later, theWashington Co. VA census shows Francis Eades as a farmer and Mary as his wife.Listed in their householdis a Susan, age 7 and a Catherine, age 3?
It is uncertain how these 2 children fit into the family, since both were born before Francis and Mary were married.
In the 1880 census, we can find the family living in Washington Co. TN. Francis Marion is listed in the census index as F.A. Eades.Mary is listed as M.F.The Index was made public some 72 years after the census was taken. On that census listing,the A after the F in F. A. Eades appears to resemble the "and" signmore than an A. All children born before that date arelisted. Cora Virginia and Walter Dillard have not yet been born.Cora Virginia Eades was born in Memphis in 1881 and Walter Dillard was born in Nebraska in 1882.
Nothing more has been found on Mary Gaby Eades.she was buried supposedly in Paul's Valley Oklahoma.
She was married to Francis Marion EADS (son of David EADS and Sarah ? MEEK?) on 4 Jun 1870 in Sullivan Co. TN.Francis Marion EADS was born about 1839 in Marion City VA.He died on 23 Mar 1921 in Pawhuska Ok.The first record we can find of Francis marion Eadesis the 1850 census of Smyth Co. Virginia.He is listed as 12 yrs old in the household of David Eades. no wife of David is listed.
In the 1860 census Francis is listed as 22 yrs old and a hired hand for the household of a well to do James Byars in Glade Spring Township, Washington Co. VA.
