Ancestors of Robert Mable, Sr.


Generation No. 1

       1. Robert Mable, Sr., born October 18, 1803 in Clifton-Coat, Roxburgshire, Scotland; died July 07, 1885 in Mableton, Coxes District, Cobb County, Georgia. He was the son of 2. John Mable and 3. Agnes Stevenson. He married (1) Pheriby Lane Aycock December 14, 1837 in Newton County, Georgia. She was the daughter of Joel Aycock, Sr. and Rebecca Bradford. He married (2) Almeda Polk Aycock March 08, 1855 in Newton County, Georgia. She was the daughter of Richard Aycock, Jr. and Nancy Bradford.

Notes for Robert Mable, Sr.:
From GENEALOGY OF THE MABLE FAMILY provided by Sarah Hannah:

"Robert Mable came south in 1821 from New York to Savannah, Georgia. Here he learned the trade of a millwright, and built many grist mills in South Carolina, and Georgia. Then he went to Newton County, Georgia where he married Pheriby Lane Aycock in 1837. Four children were born to them in Newton County, Georgia."

"In 1846 Robert Mable and his wife, Pheriby Lane moved to Cobb County, Georgia. He had a plantation of 500 acres ans several slaves. Three children were born in Cobb County."

"In 1856 Robert Mable married his first wife's cousin, Almeda Polk Aycock Hodge, a widow (Grandmother of Pitts girls), and to this union 3 other children were born."

"Mableton, Georgia was named for Robert Mable, because he gave the right of way for the railroad to go through his property. The family cemetery is back of the garden at the old home in Cobb County. Robert Mable is buried between his 2 wives. There are 9 slaves buried there, 3 sons and 4 daughters as well as other relatives."


The Mable family bible and cemetery records are in the Joseph L. Habersham chapter of the D.A.R., compiled by Mrs. E.B. Waitt in 1955.

From Sweetwater News Enterprise, May 19, 1977:

"Robert Mable, for whom Mableton was named, married Pheriby Aycock, of Lithonia, in 1837, and they came to Coxes District of Cobb County, which had been created in 1836, to live.

In 1843 he finished paying for 300 acres of land which he had purchased from Denson C. Melton, of Newton County, and was given a deed dated September 11, 1843, when he started constructing his antebellum home which stands today on Floyd Road at the junction of Gordon Road Extension, in Mableton.

Pheriby Aycock Mable died giving birth to their seventh child. Robert then married Almeda Hodge and they had three children.

Robert and both of his wives were well educated for that day and time an he was determined that his children should have a good education. Therefore, he converted his first log cabin home into a school for his children and other children in the area, charging ten cents a week tuition.

Robert Mable died in 1885 and was buried in his family cemetery back of his home.

His last surviving daughter, Miss Ruth Mable, who never married, continued to teach school in Mableton until early in the 20th Century, and when she passed on she willed the homeplace in perpetuity to three Trustees of the Mable Family Cemetery, which she named, with a stipulation that if any one ceased to perform the duties entrusted to him because of death or otherwise, then, in that event, the other two should name a successor, so that there would always be at least two trustees to administer the trust, which was to keep and perpetuate the Mable Cemetery, by using income from the home and land set aside for that purpose."

From Sweetwater News Enterprise, 1980:

"The first passenger train from Atlanta reached ... Mableton in Dec. 1881, after tracklaying had been completed on the Georgia Pacific Railway from Atlanta to Mableton.

Mableton then had two schools, the Mable School north of the railroad tracks, and the Fair View School south of the railroad tracks.
