During the 1700 family can be found in the Pennsylvania area by the name of Martin Gaby. Martin is a leader and preacher in the Moravain religion. A Wolfe is a member of the congregation. Martin Gaby son (Isaac Gaby) married Mary Magdeln FRantz late 1700s and about 1790 these PA families move into West Va. There is also Wolfe families in the area. Mary's father Christian Frantz goes to Ohio in Clark county. He is an Elder in the Morvain church. Christian dies and his estate is settled by Isaac and it took him almost 20 years to settle with everyone. Isaac and Mary have three sons. Martin, Isaac and CF. CF is found in the 1840 census in VA. In 1850 CF is gone and his five children are found in different homes in Tn. One daughter Mary E. Gaby is in the home of Elder Joseph Bowman. She is here until 1860.
The name of Mary's mother is a mystery. She lived most of her life in a community which is German and is associated with the Brethren and Moravain.
Mary's mother is suppose to be Indian. My great grandmother told my mother that we were related to James Wolfe. The name James Wolfe same that fought on the Plains of Abraham during Rev. War.
CF according to family oral history the family were on their way to Oregon and a tragic event happened. The five children made it to Oregon and were returned to Tn .
Any help from researchers. CF would have married between 1810 and 1820. Maybe in Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, or Tennessee.
Thanks for any ideas or assistance.
