Thanks for the helpful information in tracing my Gable family in York County, SC. However, in a well known book on the Gable family of the South by Zelma Wells Price, she begins with this quote, "Early spelling of the name Gable is found as Gabel, Gabe, Gabie, Gaby, Gabby, Gabriel, Galey and other variations, and often with an "s" added." For example, our immigrant ancestor, John Henry Gable, is recorded in South Carolina and most notably in York County, SC under the name variations of Gaby, Gabby and Gabie. By the way, our Gable family originated from England before coming to America from Holland.
I hope this will help you to better understand some of the reasons behind my research. Also, if you have come up against any brick walls in your Gaby research this might be an important angle to pursue. Most importantly, if you have any Gaby family in South Carolina and particularly in York County, SC, please post another message or e-mail me as I would like to discuss this further. :)
